This document tells you how to verify your ownership of a domain name after applying for a DV certificate.
- Please complete the verification as soon as possible. CA will reject your certificate application if you fail to finish and pass the verification process within 3 days.
- After the verification is passed, you can use the Certificate Management Download and install the relevant certificate.
The domain name ownership can be verified by:
|Verification Mode||Use Cases||Waiting time for issuance|
|Automatic DNS verification||The domain name resolved by Tencent Cloud must be used.|
If Tencent Cloud parsing is used, it is recommended to use this method.
|Domain name type DVThe issuing time is 10 minutes-24 hours.|
|Manual DNS verification||It is suitable for domain names that are resolved on any platform.|
|File verification||In cases where there are limitations in using automatic DNS validation and manual DNS validation.|
(the operation process is complicated and requires a certain foundation for building a station.)
This DNS verification method is limited to domain names resolved by Tencent Cloud DNS.
If the domain name for which you are applying for a certificate has been resolved by Tencent Cloud DNS, you can choose automatic verification.
The system will automatically add the specified DNS resolution record for the domain name, and automatically complete the domain name ownership verification.
The following actions are only for domain names Domain name parser In the case of Tencent Cloud, if it is not Tencent Cloud, please go to the corresponding domain name Domain name parser To parse at.
www.domain.com) corresponding Domain name parser In Tencent Cloud.

Create the specified file in the root directory of the website, including the file directory, name, and content.
The website root directory refers to the folder where you store the website programs on the server. Its name may be wwwroot, htdocs, public_html, or webroot.

If the domain name for which you apply for file verification is
example.www.domain.com, access the URL
https://example.www.domain.com/.well-known/pki-validation/fileauth.txt for verification.
for a second-level domain name starting with www, such as
www.domain.com, you need to do the following two steps:
-the first step is to add [File Verification] (# FileVerification) to the domain name.
-the second step is to verify the main domain name
domain.com(you do not need to reapply for a certificate). The verification method is verified according to linked address format, and the verification value is consistent.
If the domain name for which you apply for file verification is a wildcard domain name-
* .domain.com, access the URL
https://domain.com/.well-known/pki-validation/fileauth.txt for verification.
- Both HTTP and HTTPS are supported, and either of them can be accessed.
- File verification does not support any redirect, instead, it directly responds to status code 200 and file content is needed.
