In order to prove that your company is the owner of the domain, you need to validate the ownership of your domain. In WSO2 StratosLive there are two ways to validate your domain.

  • Creating a text file in the domain web root
  • Setting up a CNAME entry in your DNS.

From the above two methods creating a text file in the domain web root is the fastest way to validate your domain and you can do it within few seconds. If you proceed with the second option, it'll take up to 48 hours to reflect the added CNAME entry in your DNS. So in this knowledge-base, I'll explains how we can validate the domain ownership by adding a text file in the web root using WSO2 StratosLive.

Pre-requisite :

  1. Your own registered domain
  2. Create a tenant in WSO2 StratosLive with the domain name above [1]


Access WSO2 StratosLive.

Login to WSO2 StratosLive as tenant admin using your account and go to Configurations -> Account -> Domain validation.


 Under "Validate Domain Ownership", click on "Validate Now" and it will redirect to the domain validation page.


Adding text file in Domain root

Then add  you will get two options to validate your domain. Use the first option. And create a text file in your domain root call wso2multitenancy.txt. And add the given text content inside that text file you just created.

Click the "Validate" button, after you complete the above step. You will get a success message  for a successful validation. Click on continue to finish the validation process. After a sucessful validation, you will be redirected to Account management page with a message saying "Domain Validation Sucessful".


Once the domain validation is finish you will see the text with a tick mark, "The ownership of your domain is already validated".
