SSL confirmation via DNS method

If you want to confirm SSL through the DNS validation method, you will need to add a DNS record to your domain's DNS service, so that the issuing authority can authenticate the domain and proceed with the certificate issuance process. Instructions. You can send the request for security reasons:

Once the certificates are issued they will be sent to your SSL administrator email and to install them, proceed to step 6 of the SSL installation steps.
