Domain Verification with dApp Store Kit
The domain verification allows us to verify that a certain user has ownership of a certain domain. These domains are mapped to dApps in the registry, thus allowing a verification of ownership of the dApp altogether.
In order to verify a domain, following steps are performed.
- dApp Store Kit issues a code. This code should be placed in a TXT field in the DNS of the domain
- dApp Store Kit verifies the code.
Generate the verification code
The generated code should be entered as a TXT record with
host name set to
value set to the value returned from the API response.
The following APIs have a field named
githubId. You may use this field to pass any arbitrary
value that represents a unique user in your app.
Verify the code
Note that verification may take upto 72 hours. It depends on DNS propagation. At the UI, you may show a link to https://www.whatsmydns.net/ to check for the propagation.
If the verification fails, it's best to let user know they have to wait, and retry later.
