Note: You don’t need to copy entire domain name since the root domain has already auto populated on Google Cloud DNS.
Fully qualified domain name (FQDN): Auto populated

Your TXT record has been added.

At this point you have registered your domain with automatic DNS validation. As soon as your random value has propagated, the Entrust verification system will automatically capture and approve the domain for use. Note the time this will take will vary, depending on the propagation time of your DNS server.
