I ran this command: Manual DNS method

It produced this output: No TXT Record Found. Make to set the TTL to 1 second or if you cannot set the TTL then you must wait the TTL (in seconds) so it updates before verifying the domain. Contact your DNS provider if unsure.

You have created a “double entry”. So the menu adds your domain name, the result is wrong:

So remove your domain name. Add two entries with



Hi JuergenAuer,

Thank you for your support. And Now I am receiving this error.


DNS updates are NOT instant.
I think what the error message is trying to say is for you to wait until the new TXT entry has synchronized (or lower the TTL so that the previous record expires quicker).


It cant be reduced lesser than 600 Sec in go-daddy. same time after the waiting period of 600 sec it gets refreshed and again showing the same 600 sec


OK, well then can you get authenticated after waiting the 600 seconds?


I have waited for 3 time that 600 seconds. Once it gets done with 600 Sec. Again it showing to
TTL: 600
TXT: RAc380H-YL4ZYC2l0wzmH2Q8OsE2GnF9DiVBpnVXGqE

You have removed the wrong entries. The existing entries have the expected format (this is checked).


The TTL is not the question - that will remain at 600.
The question is can you manually issue a new cert using DNS auth?


PS: You can’t reuse this old entry.

If the challenge is invalid, you have to start with a new order.

So the tool gives you two new txt entries.


Yep, there

is a new certificate :wink:


It is not yet refreshed. I have got the Certificate:Private Key:CA Bundle now i am little confused where should i past it
I have to godady account one is for my domain and another one for hosting. I have entered the DNS in one account now looking to paste Certificate:Private Key:CA Bundle. But dont know where should i Past


The cert is for the hosting.
But I don’t use GoDaddy, so I can’t really help guide you since I don’t know how they do it.
