If you run advertising campaigns on Facebook, you need to verify domain ownership for your landing pages. You can do this in three ways:

  • by adding meta tags to your landing page;
  • by updating the DNS TXT record; 
  • or by uploading an HTML file to your root directory.

In this guide, you will learn how to verify your landing page with meta tags and the TXT record. 

You can only verify ownership of the root domain. For example, if your landing page address is: https://www.mycompany.com/voucher, add only the root domain name in the appropriate field when adding a domain, here: mycompany.com

Add your domain

1. Go to Business Settings of your Facebook Business Manager.

2. Go to the Brand Safety tab and choose Domains.
