Domain verification

In Zoho, domain verification can be done in three ways: CNAME, TXT Method, and HTML Method. CNAME is the simplest and in this article we focus on this one in particular. The HTML method cannot be used in Jumpseller.


Domain verification with CNAME

This means adding a unique 'CNAME' record specified by us in the domain's DNS Administration.

You need to have a domain, now you can use Zoho to buy a domain or you can even create one with Jumpseller. Use your Jumpseller domain to register with Zoho.

  1. At Zoho, click on control panel and then click on Domain, it should start the verification wizard.

  2. Then, you must select the DNS provider of your domain, which in this case will be others, as you can see at the end.

Configure MX Records

Once you're done with domain verification, the next step to consider is setting up email delivery. MX record entries are special DNS server records that designate recipient email servers for your domain. As seen in the image below, you can change MX records after creating all user accounts and email addresses in Zoho.
