Adding SSL support for your website involves verifying that you are the owner of the domain.
In order to use email validation on [subdomain.]example.com, select an email address from a shortlist of acceptable options.
An email will be sent to that address, containing a unique validation code.
The email should be received by someone in control of the domain, where they can follow a link provided in the email and enter the validation code, thus providing domain control.
This method is ideal for customers who have access to email for their domain registered contacts or can receive email at a set of predefined domain mailboxes such as, firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
The list of acceptable email addresses for any given domain is:
Any other email address that appears on the domain's WHOIS record (domain's registered contacts).
Here is an example of the possible email addresses for Wildcard SSL Certificate (request: *.microsoft.com & microsoft.com ) on domain www.microsoft.com:
firstname.lastname@example.org - appears in the domain's WHOIS record.
In some cases, the email addresses in the list provided to you may not be active or may not be monitored by you. In that case, you will need to associate a new email address with your domain in order to continue the setup process.
Associating a new email address with your domain is done through your domain registrar and you should contact your domain registrar support team. If you encounter any problems in this process please open a ticket with our support team and we will do our best to assist.
