recently signed up for a service called Google Apps. It allows me to use Google applications--such as Gmail and Google Calendar--for my domain. My domain is hosted with you, and I need help creating a TXT record to prove to Google that I own my domain.

I have a unique security token from Google that I need to include in the Text field (sometimes called the TXT Record, Answer, or Value field) of the TXT record.

Note: You can find your security token in your Google Apps administrator control panel. It is a 68-character string that begins with google-site-verification:, followed by 43 additional characters (for example, google-site-verification:9B6L-KvJkGbaw3htkiLOGdDKLTFzqd0-8QKKz0TMg1Y).
The Host Name field (sometimes called the Record Host, TXT Name, or Host field) should be left blank. However, if a value is required in this field, enter the @ symbol.

Once the TXT record is created correctly, I'll be able to use Google Apps for my domain.

dynadot support sucks. I need add with value, which both works smoothly on google and godaddy while sinks here. I chat with support here but I was suggested to contact my hosting SP, which sucks.
why I can't do right thing here like I done with my google and godaddy dns setting? what fails exactly on such a small technology?

woz: What issue were you having when trying to set up a TXT record? Looks like you were able to successfully save it under your DNS page.

Its a really old post, but I had the same problem and found the solution (maybe some day someone needs a solution too and reads this):
If you get the info to setup a TXT Record like this: Domainname: "_acme-challenge.YOURDOMAIN.TLD" with value: "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (YOUR VALUE)" you have to add the record under "Subdomain Records (optional)" -> Subdomain: "_acme-challenge" -> Record Type: "TXT" -> IP Address or Target Host: "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (YOUR VALUE)".

In short: don't add the full phrase "_acme-challenge.YOURDOMAIN.TLD" and just use "_acme-challenge" WITHOUT your domain following! Then it works! Dynadot adds the domain automatically.
The countertest (if you added _acme-challenge.YOURDOMAIN.TLD) to understand this is to check the published DNS-Record (i.e. here as _acme-challenge.YOURDOMAIN.TLD.YOURDOMAIN.TLD.

solobaja: I don't see a domain in your account. Do you have more than one?
