How should I pass Namecheap's Domain Control Validation with DNS?

Ubuntu DNS

I have purchased a SSL ceritifcation from namecheap.com, I have chose to use DNS to verify my domain. Namecheap provided me a “HOST” (randomstring.mydomain.com) and a TARGET (randomstring.comodoca.com).

How should I use these information to make validation? What should I input in DigitalOcean CNAME record?

Thank you.

Sure, simply put the verification .txt file on your server and it will validate. This is the guide I followed to get it done.
