Adding CAA record on CWP
« on: March 11, 2019, 09:00:48 PM »
Hello,

How to add a CAA record on CWP? Is it through a CNAME, TXT, PTR or other? Where do I add it in CWP.

Any advice is welcome

Good point.
CWP seems not have CAA record in DNS functions.
CAA records are growing in importance in global internet, as several authorities begin to emerge offering free certificates, posing security problems to domain owners.

May be you have do it only manually, at the moment.

Regards,
Netino

Edit your zone file in '/var/named' directory.
For example, for a "example.com" domain, the file '/var;named/domain.com.db'.

And add the following at the final of that file, for exemple to the Letís Encrypt certificate authority,:
Code: [Select]
example.com.  CAA 0 issue "letsencrypt.org"

If you want to allow Letís Encrypt for wildcard certificates, then you can use issuewild:
Code: [Select]
example.com.  CAA 0 issuewild "letsencrypt.org"

Save the changes, and restart named:
(for CentOS 7)
Code: [Select]
# systemctl restart named

(for CentOS 6.*)
Code: [Select]
# service named restart

Thank you Netino.
That saved me a lot of time as trying to add CAA through panel was not possible.
