To demonstrate that I have control of our domain (lumin.ai), the Zoom App Marketplace submission process requires me to place a Zoom-created file at https://lumin.ai/zoomverify/verifyzoom.html. But because we use SquareSpace, we have limited control over the URL structure of our site. The closest I’ve been able to get is to create a 301 redirect from that URL to https://lumin.ai/s/verifyzoom.html.
As shown in the screenshot below, the verification app complains “can not access the html file, please be sure the file uploaded correctly and retry”. I realize this is because the file isn’t actually at that URL; it’s behind a redirect.
How To Reproduce (If applicable)
If we still have it set up by the time you see this, you’re welcome to look at the …verifyzoom.html file
Screenshots (If applicable)
- (Fond hope) Is there a different mechanism for proving domain ownership, such as adding a DNS TXT record?
- Can I prove domain ownership to a human being at Zoom?
- I know that I could temporarily change our DNS CNAME and A records to point to something I have more control over; but for obvious reasons, I would really rather not do that.
