Issue creating certificate with DNS validation alias mode

As per the instructions of @Neilpang, the CNAME should be set,

I am using godaddy and my question is, should they be set at the dns management records or dns records?

The records. When you have CNAME, that is a record describing and therefore it belongs in the zone.

Another way to think about this in this context is that the CNAME record that you create will delegate the ability to create certificates for to Only someone who already controls DNS for should be able to create this delegation! (For example, you shouldn’t be able to get certificates for or just by editing DNS records for some other domain.)
