Verifying Google Apps domain ownership using TXT record

In Google Apps admin area:

  • Under the domain verification section select “Alternate Methods” then Add a DNS Record to Your Domains Configuration
  • Select “Other” from the drop-down list
  • You will get the value that you should use as a TXT record, something like: google-site-verification=abcDEFGhIjkl123450


In, open your domain management:

  1. From the side menu choose Domains > My domains
  2. Find the domain you’d like to verify on the list and click “Manage”
  3. From the top menu choose Management Tools > Manage DNS
  4. On the Manage DNS page, click “Add Record” button on the bottom right
  5. On the Add Record page, select TXT from record types drop-down, and add the verification TXT given by Google apps to the text input on the right
  6. Click on “Add Record”
