AWS SES Domain Verification not working

Kaartz asked:

I am trying to verify a domain on aws ses, the domain is managed on google domains. It has been three days since adding the text record in google domains, but still not getting verified in aws ses. I am not sure what could be problem. I would really appreciate if anyone could help me debug this issue.

Record Type: TXT (Text)
TXT Name*: _amazonses.xxxxxxx.com
TXT Value: fgfgghjjkkkkkkkkkk

My answer:


You haven’t created the TXT record that Amazon SES is looking for:

$ host -t txt _amazonses.mypyapps.com
Host _amazonses.mypyapps.com not found: 3(NXDOMAIN)

Rather, you created a different TXT record:

$ host -t txt _amazonses.mypyapps.com.mypyapps.com
_amazonses.mypyapps.com.mypyapps.com descriptive text "zFQacSiZbwXvc/4qJAjwHc8L3Wt6v6jMr/Ar/ac08Q4="

Remove the extra labels when you create your TXT record.
