TXT requirements

Hi Juergen,

I was asking about the TXT requirements. Last time when i asked for a Let’s Encrypt Certificate, i was asked to provide some sort of domain verification like a TXT/CNAME record combo. Not talking about the CAA here. Any idea how people can get certificates for domains they don’t have access to such as azure.com?


Hi @Djongov

TXT entries are required if you want to create wildcard certificates. That requires dns validation.

If you can’t create TXT entries (sample: azure.com), you can’t use dns validation.


Then you have to use http validation.


Oh i get it. Thanks! I actually forgot that there was any other good way to validate other than DNS but that would work too. Thanks for you time. Hope it helps others too.
