Google Search Console ownership verification for App Platform domains
I have an App deployed and I have setup CNAME records for the “bare” and www domains (website.com and www.website.com) via Namecheap DNS. This works well after adding those domains to the app.
However, to verify ownership of the domain in the Google Search Console, I must add a TXT record on these same domains. This is not possible with an existing CNAME record.
I attempted to replace the CNAME record on the bare domain with both ALIAS and URL redirect records, however visiting the page returns a “404 Not Found” page with “Code: NoSuchWebsiteConfiguration”.
How are people setting up Google Search Console verification while also configuring CNAME DNS resolution for their Apps?
