Hello, I’m trying to do the above via https://search.google.com/search-console/welcome?utm_source=about-page, however every time I’m getting the folowing error: “Could not find your domain. Confirm that you provided the correct domain for your property.”.
I have added various verification TXT entries multiple times and waited enough for propagation, but no luck.
The domain is accessible trough a browser. If howevever you do
dig -t txt happybeeclothes.co.uk, the response is
dig -t txt happybeeclothes.co.uk ; <<>> DiG 9.11.3-1ubuntu1.16-Ubuntu <<>> -t txt happybeeclothes.co.uk ;; global options: +cmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: SERVFAIL, id: 45288 ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 0, ADDITIONAL: 1 ;; OPT PSEUDOSECTION: ; EDNS: version: 0, flags:; udp: 65494 ;; QUESTION SECTION: ;happybeeclothes.co.uk.

Two things to note though:
What am I doing wrong?
Edit: DO own tool also doesn’t find any TXT records on my domain, even though I have now 3 of them: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tools/dns?domain=happybeeclothes.co.uk

Solved! The issue was with one of the TXT keys. Because it was malformed, none of the others were accessible.
Have you added the ns1 to ns3 DNS for digitalocean to your Namecheap? If not, please do.
From checking with DNS nodes, it doesn’t appear there’s any propagation happening for the TXT at all anywhere in the world (https://dnschecker.org/#TXT/happybeeclothes.co.uk)
