Ownership Verification

Applicable Scenarios

When your site/domain name is connected to EdgeOne for the first time, in order to ensure that you are the owner of the currently accessed site/domain name, we need you to verify the ownership of the site/domain name.
Note:
This operation is only required in CNAME connection. If your site is accessed in NS mode, you can directly switch the DNS server to EdgeOne to complete the ownership verification.

Differences Between Domain and Site Verification

Assume that you have domain names a.example.com, b.example.com, c.example.com and the site you connected is example.com.
Siteverification: If you have permission to configure DNS root domain resolution or root name server, use this method to reduceoperating costs.
Once yourownership of the site is verified by EdgeOne, you can directly add itssubdomain names a.example.com, b.example.com, c.example.com.
Domainverification: If your company is a multi-levelbusiness or provides domain operations and maintenance and you only havepermission to configure DNS resolution and the origin server for the subdomainnames, you can skip verification when connecting the site. However, all itssubdomain names need to be verified before being added.
Using domainverification requires you to verify a.example.com, b.example.com and c.example.com before connection.
Once yourownership of these domain names is verified, you can directly add all theirsubdomain names. For instance, when a.example.com is verified, test.a.example.com can be directly added.

Steps to Verify the Site or Domain Name Ownership

The verification steps of site ownership are the same as those of domain name ownership. The following example describes how to verify the site ownership.
