How do I confirm domain ownership for Google?

When you sign up for Google services, you'll need to confirm ownership of your domain. There are several verification methods such as uploading an HTML file, adding an HTML tag in the code of the web page or creating a DNS record.

The easiest way is to add a TXT record in the DNS zone of your domain.

To do this, you must log in to the Control Panel with your Hostpoint ID. Then click on the menu item «Domains» and on «Edit DNS Zone» to access the DNS administration.
