I follow Set up G Suite to verify domain and set up email in G Suite. I need to add new TXT record for my domain. The problem is that for the name of TXT record I must add @, but when I try I get this error:

A zone name must be a domain name, and can include a period at the end.

How can I add TXT record to verify my domain for G Suite ?

  • Who is your DNS provider? – captncraig Aug 1 '17 at 13:20

@ is a shorthand notation for the "apex domain", or just example.com with no subdomain.

For DNS, a Fully Qualified Domain Name is generally notated as example.com. with a dot at the end.

It seems that your DNS config provider wants you to use example.com. instead of the shorthand @.

  • Thanks, @stephen-ostermiller, I forget to use proper fake domains sometimes. – captncraig Aug 1 '17 at 13:38
