    I have been asked to create a txt record for google verification however google asks to create it with the hostname set to @ or blank however this just throws up an error. The only way I can create a txt record is by using the domain name. That doesn't work for google verirfication as it seems it cannot detect the txt record.

    Is there a way around this?

    thanks

    Hello :)

    What method are you using to create the "TXT" record? Please try with:

    "WHM Home » DNS Functions » Edit DNS Zone"

    Let us know the outcome.

    Thank you.
