We have some customers that need to validate their domain.

  • Give every domain a unique verification code
  • Allow customer to lock their domain to prevent automatic verify of their active domain (this lock is removed when a domain is removed; this lock is intended when bigger teams have access and want to prevent team members to move any domains)
  • Allow customers to verify any non locked domain that's (previously) registered
  • Create a page with instructions that shows their verify code (see email below)
  • Make a crawler that checks for the 3 methods
    • Meta tag
    • TXT DNS record
    • CNAME DNS record
  • Move domain to new account after validation succeeded
  • Make sure domains that are added this way do not show history

Email customers now get to verify

If you don't have access to the other account you can always transfer the domain name to your account.

There are 3 methods to verify you own the domain:

  1. Add a TXT record with the text sa-verify-***
  2. Add a CNAME record linking from the subdomain sa-verify to ***
  3. Add a meta tag <meta name="sa-verify" content="***" /> to your home page

Let me know when you have done one of these methods. After that I can manually move the domain to your account.
