Facebook Domain Verification


Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Recommended Posts

Hi - has anyone successfully verified their domain on Facebook? As part of the iOS 14 release, FB is requiring that we verify our domain and offers options to do this via meta-tag injection, HTML file upload, and DNS verification. I tried the meta-tag injection using the code injection feature on Squarespace, but it still wasn't recognizing the code on the site (although I do see the code when I look at the page source). 

Both FB and Squarespace have been unhelpful so any guidance would be VERY welcome. 

Thanks!

Hi. Can you share link to your site? Which code did you insert? Where did you insert code? Which plan do you use? Personal or Business or higher?

I recommend that you use the DNS verification method as this is easier for Squarespace site owners.

All you need to do is to add a TXT entry to your DNS records to confirm that you own the domain. The precise steps to add a DNS TXT entry will depend on the company who host your domain name.

Just did the Facebook domain verification, here are the steps: 

In FB Business Manager, add you domain in Business Settings>Brand Safety>Domains.

I chose the DNS method, click to copy the necessary information to the clipboard.

In Squarespace: Settings>Domains>Choose correct domain (if hosting more than one)

Advanced settings> Custom Records 'Add' >Paste needful>change Record to TXT and Save

Back in FB Business Manager - I waited only a few minutes, clicked Verify and it's done.

THANK YOU!

That worked for me. I thought for a while I might have to upgrade my package to confirm my domain to Facebook. Phew!

THANK YOU Megan McCrory!!! Facebook was absolutely useless as I wasted 30 minutes of my life I'll never get back, as were the generic "use the DNS verification!" prompt. You clearly outlining the steps enabled me to make it work. YOU ARE AWESOME!!!
