Unable to verify CNAME record



I am installing a security certificate for our Load Balancer via AWS. AWS asks for a CNAME record to be present in the domain to verify the domain ownership.

I added the CNAME pair given by AWS but I am unable to verify it. I used DNS Checker for verification. The ‘CNAME record’ is getting verified as a ‘A record’ but not as a ‘CNAME record’.

The CNAME flattening option is set to root domain only.



Is your entry proxied (:orange:)?


How do I check that?


In your DNS settings.


Yes, it is. Should I turn that off?


Yes, you should.


Thanks Sandro, it worked!
