I am attempting to do the following:
I am able to set up a CNAME for status.mydomain.com, and I was able to set up the email DKIM and CNAMEs.
However, it is requiring a TXT record for domain ownership and SPF. AFAIK you can't have a TXT record and CNAME record with the same hostname. My DNS provider is not allowing me to add a TXT record with the same hostname as well. Is having DKIM enough for custom emails, or am I forced to use different subdomains for email and the page?
I'm Scot, from the Statuspage Support team in the APAC region.
You're absolutely right you can't put a TXT record on a CNAME record - RFC 1034 doesn't allow this! Fortunately you can apply it to the APEX domain record as per our Statuspage documentation on configure-your-dns,
If your domain is a subdomain the record can be placed on the subdomain itself or the apex domain. Both will be checked to complete verification for domain ownership.
So to setup the domain ownership - you need to add the TXT record to your mydomain.com DNS entry, and we'll reference that when doing the domain ownership check for you.
