DNS Domain Verification

I've entered the TXT record presented for domain verification, but the verify process never passes. NSLOOKUP and outside tools return the correct DNS information, but the Atlassian domain verification processes doesn't. Any insight would be appreciated.

Can you perform "dig -t 'TXT' <domain> on your terminal and see if the txt record is there?

A working one will have something like this:

dig -t 'TXT' livelyhood.my

; <<>> DiG 9.10.3-P4-Ubuntu <<>> -t TXT livelyhood.my

As you can see from above, the Atlassian TXT record is in the server. Can you confirm that the TXT record is there? If it's there, try to increase the TTL and try again.
