how i resolve we have not been able to verify your authority to this domain. Error 12 on blogger


after the upgrade on blogger domain name switching disabled, i tried to add a newly bought domain to blogger and got a message that says We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain. Error 12.i was surprised as you.thought it was another bug.i clicked on the link that says settings instruction under blogger publishing settings and got an information to resolve the issue.so if you have been trying and there is no solution yet, then this post will guide you on how to resolve We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain. Error 12 on blogger blog

blogger domain switching resolve

note that this is not a bug.as part of blogger new rule, every newly bought domain name is to be verified by the owner by adding another CNAME RECORD to their DNS server.

this means that they have introduced a second CNAME record to be added to DNS server to prove that you are the real owner of the domain name which is kind of cool since it serve as a means of protection.



you may like to read how to find edu blog/website and forum for backlink the second CNAME has a unique verification key for each blogger users.it looks like this, name/host = "dht12345677", target/destination = "gv-(verification key).domainverify.googlehosted.com.".

so for it to work, you have to create another cname alias and insert those verification keys accordingly i.e host = "dht12345677" and target/destination/address = "gv-(verification key).domainverify.googlehosted.com.".

please do not use the above verification key as its used for illustration.each blog has their own, so to get yours, click the settings instruction under your blogger publishing settings and tick the radio button that says "On a top-level domain (www.example.com)", you will see it there.

if you add every thing correctly, then you will no longer see the We have not been able to verify your authority to this domain. Error 12. that's all.ENJOY.

@e-football,you just have to fix the 2nd cname records on your domain before it would work.

@anonymous, when you login to your blogger dashboard and click on settings, under the domain option, you will see settings instruction, click on it.a page will open,tick the radio button that says "on a top level domain", there you will see the verification keys to use as 2nd cname record.

Very useful information, I have a question; I have a domain with Godaddy, but it does not allow me to insert the second name under CNames, it post a warning. Should the string be added to "txt" instead?

John Pori on November 2, 2012 at 1:35 PM said...

as for godaddy, i believe blogger also made an illustration on how to go about fixing it, check the settings instruction and choose godaddy from the domain examples

Amelia's SmartyPlants on November 28, 2012 at 6:53 AM said...

1and1.com does not support the 2nd CNAME method because the Key is too long for their field. After days of struggling with this, i'd recommend a different registrar for Blogspot.
