Welcome to OSMstudios

This is the website we use to showcase our projects, talk about how we did them, and finally rant about technology, politics, videogames, and development.

We used to offer freelance development work for web projects and mobile development. If you are an existing client you can contact us through this form. However, we are no longer accepting new clients or new work.

Namecheap and Amazon SES Verification

Posted in Content by Dawson Goodell

I'm posting this here since the only help I could find on this topic came from a rather vague YouTube video that moves too fast to see.

When Amazon SES gives you your TXT and CNAME records, you don't enter the part that is your domain on namecheap.

Amazon gives you:
Record Type: TXT (Text)
TXT Name*: _amazonses.osmstudios.com
TXT Value: <string of random characters>


The value stays the same but the TXT Name should just be "_amazonses"  No need to add the domain name.

Same thing for the DKIM records.  Simply drop your domain name from the host entry.
