Validation Method: Sectigo DNS

For this validation method you need to create a CNAME record in the DNS settings of your domain.

To order Comodo SSL Certificates using DNS validation please set the respective parameter "AUTHMETHOD = DNS" in "AddCertificate", "RenewCertificate" and "ReissueCertificate" commands. The data necessary for DNS validation will be returned in the response of the respective command:

  • property[dnsauth name][0]: needed ressource record

Command

Command=AddCertificate
AuthMethod=DNS

Response

code = 200
property[certificate][0] = CY2757994
property[dnsauth name][0] = _47cba4dfbe697765f51230e84f04d091.mail.example.com.  CNAME  5b06bda4ffe784373d6616ab8fcbef1.7da4549f0623a25f37e128efb0fbf745d.1f96729172445e721043.comodoca.com.
property[status][0] = REQUESTED
property[sub][0] = CY2757994-001
property[sub status][0] = ORDER_REQUESTED

Example

mail.example.com
MD5 Hash: 47cba4dfbe697765f51230e84f04d091
SHA-256 Hash: 5b06bda4ffe784373d6616ab8fcbef17da4549f0623a25f37e128efb0fbf745d
Random Hash: 1f96729172445e721043

Important:

  • The CNAME Record must begin with a leading underscore "_"
  • The SHA-256 Hash needs to be interrupted with a point every 32 characters. Additionally, the Random Hash needs to be separated with a point as well.

The new CNAME record should look as follows:

_47cba4dfbe697765f51230e84f04d091.mail.example.com.  CNAME  5b06bda4ffe784373d6616ab8fcbef1.7da4549f0623a25f37e128efb0fbf745d.1f96729172445e721043.comodoca.com.

Order the certificate

After ordering the certificate you can check its status by issuing the StatusCertificate command. The data for DNS Validation will be returned as well.

Command

Command=StatusCertificate
Certificate=CY2737994

Response

property[certificate][0] = CY2737994
property[dnsauth name][0] = _47cba4dfbe697765f51230e84f04d091.mail.example.com.  CNAME  5b06bda4ffe784373d6616ab8fcbef1.7da4549f0623a25f37e128efb0fbf745d.1f96729172445e721043.comodoca.com.
property[status][0] = REQUESTED
