Email Verification - Troubleshooting

If you have chosen email as your Verification method and something went wrong please have a look at the possible reasons and troubleshooting steps: 

Red Circle on Twitter I Don’t Have Access to the Listed Emails

The email addresses listed in the options for email validation are a set of standard email addresses for domain admins (admin@... or webmaster@domain.com) alongside with addresses listed on the corresponding WHOIS for the domain in question.

As the owner of the domain or administrator of it, you should be able to access these.

If you don't own an email for your domain, you need to choose a different verification method.

For each domain in your certificate, you will receive a separate confirmation email with simple verification instructions. Please always check your Spam folder. Additionally, please check that you have chosen the right email address. 

Typically, you will be able to choose between the following types of email addresses for your specific domain:

  • admin@domain.com
  • administrator@domain.com
  • hostmaster@domain.com
  • postmaster@domain.com
  • webmaster@domain.com

If all details are correct and you still have not received the email, please reach out to our Support team
