I have renewed the company website's SSL certificate but need to verify ownership of the domain by adding a Cname to the DNS. I've not got much experience installing SSL certificates and I'm struggling to get it to work.
We use AWS route 53 DNS and the record that i need to add is shown like this:
randomlettersandnumbers.www.example.com. 10800 IN CNAME randomlettersandnumbers.comodoca.com.
I find this a little confusing, but I'm pretty sure the example.com should be the name for the record and the comodoca.com for the value. However the TTL is set to only 300 and it has yet to be detected by the SSL site. Maybe i should set it to 10800 but I'm not sure it matters too much?
Any ideas what may be going wrong, I've never used AWS's DNS before so maybe it works differently to others?
