I’m trying to setup the DNS entries, which works but one:
My DNS provider (digicert/dns made easy) doesn’t accept this character for a TXT entry.
Which seems to be best practice, because it’s confusing and non-standard. While technically valid, using
@ is unconventional and might lead to confusion or compatibility issues with some tools or services that expect a specific domain name (e.g.,
_acme-challenge.yourdomain.com ) for specific purposes like domain verification. The
@ symbol is often used internally within DNS tools and configurations, so using it as a record name could potentially conflict with existing setups. It’s generally recommended to avoid using
@ and instead use a specific domain name or subdomain name for your TXT record. This ensures clarity, avoids potential conflicts, and adheres to common practices.
What can I do?
