Good day. I’m having issues registering custom domain for GitLab Pages with GoDaddy registrar. I created necessary DNS records as has been shown in the instructions, but no luck with getting it past the verification. I got
Failed to verify domain ownership error.
First I tried to set up CNAME and TXT verification records in GoDaddy Domain Manager and it didn’t work:
Next I tried to replace CNAME record with A record as pointed out in Custom domains and SSL/TLS Certificates docs and it didn’t work too:
Troubleshooting with terminal
dig _gitlab-pages-verification-code.liutkin.com TXT:

I have no idea what to do next. Would appreciate any suggestions!
