Setting up Domain Verification

Last Updated: Jun 05, 2013 06:34PM PDT
There are 3 choices for verifying your domain on App.net.  We recommend go with the first option: add an App.net follow button to your website.  But you can also verify with a plain HTML link or DNS TXT record.
 
To set up 
Domain Verification on your App.net account log into Alpha and click on your username in the upper right and click on 'Settings'.



Then click on 'Verification'



Enter the domain you wish to verify and click 'Continue'.  Note: the domain you enter here must match your DNS record exactly.  For example, 'www.mydomain.com' is not the same as 'mydomain.com'.


To verify by adding an App.net follow button:

Click on 'APP.NET FOLLOW BUTTON (RECOMMENDED)' and follow the instructions on the page.



Once you have added the HTML to your website click the 'Verify' button.

To verify your account using the plain HTML link:

Click on 'PLAIN HTML LINK' and follow the instructions on the page




Once you have added the HTML to your website click the 'Verify' button.

To verify your account using the DNS TXT record:

Click on 'DNS' and follow the instructions on the page




Once you have added the TXT record to your domains DNS records click the 'Verify' button.


If we detect the follow button, HTML snippet or DNS TXT record on your site, we'll add the verified status to your account so when you're done you're profile should look like this:





Please note:  If you change your username or remove the HTML from your website, you'll lose your verified status on App.net.
