AWS Certificate validation

Hi there,

 

I have created a Certificated on AWS Certificate Manager and it has a validation process via DNS Records.

AWS Provide 3 area

Name:_xxxxxxxxxx.mydomain.co(.) 

TYPE:CNAME

Value: _xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.acm-validations.aws(.)

 

But Godady has 3 area thats

Type *       Select       NameserverACNAMEMXTXTSRVAAAACAA      
Host *
Points to *
 
So how i will fill these fields?
Type: Cname
Name = Host
Points to = Value
without (.)
 
?

Re: AWS Certificate validation

Hi @huzunkaya, thanks for posting.

In general, you don't need to include your domain name in the Host section. In your example, the Host would just be "_xxxxxxxxxx". The Points To would be the full value, without the "(.)", as you suggested.

Re: AWS Certificate validation

I added the similar format. Its not working. Did it worked for anyone?.

Re: AWS Certificate validation

I am not having success with the host as "_xxxxxxxx". Could it be because I am attempting to use a sub-domain such as "subdomain.domain.com" at AWS? I have also tried "_xxxxxxx.subdomain" without success. The record name provided by AWS is "_xxxxxxxxxxxx.subdomain.domain.com"

Re: AWS Certificate validation

The HOST field assumes that you're using the domain in the ZoneFile you are working with.

 

Goal Validate Sub-Domain for AWS:

example domain: CoolExample.com

cName setup 
HOST: www             Target/Value/Points to: _#####XX#######XXX##XX.xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.acm-validations.aws

 

Equals: WWW.CoolExample.com  points to:  _#####XX#######XXX##XX.xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.acm-validations.aws

 

if your host is a subdomain call WWW.new.CoolExample.com

 

Then Host needs to be www.new do not have a period (.) at the end, this will be seen as 

 

www.new..CoolExample.com instead of  (double dot)

www.new.CoolExample.com (single dot)

 

 

To validate _###XXX##XX#X#X#X#X#X#.www.subdomain.CoolExample.com you will need to have a HOST: _###XXX##XX#X#X#X#X#X#.www.subdomain
