How to add your website to BAT as a publisher via DNS record on Godaddy
Here is a step-by-step guide which hopefully makes it straightforward. This guide is for GoDaddy, but the actions are similar for other domain registrars.
Step 0: sign up to Brave as a publisher if you haven't already. Complete registration.
Step 1: On your Brave Rewards Creators page click "Add Channel" at the bottom of the page.
Step 2: Select Website, enter the domain name you own. Select option "B. Edit DNS Records." Click on "I'll edit my DNS record."
Step 3: You get a page with a guide how to complete the edit. Copy the entire text from the box under "Value (or TXT Value / Data)" which includes a long verification code into your clipboard. Don't close this window, we'll use it later.
Step 4: Sign in to your GoDaddy hosting account. Go My Products, click on the DNS button next to the domain you want to add. Below my Dutch dashboard, it looks similar in other languages.
After you've saved, your Records section should look something like this:
Step 7: Go back to your browser window in Step 3, and click Verify DNS Record button at the bottom. This may take several hours to work, mine took seconds. Brave Rewards Creators page should now show your website at the bottom with the added date and its BAT balance.
You can also visit your website with Brave browser to see when it is live. It didn't take more than a few minutes to show up, but it took around three days for my website to show up as verified. Tips are kept in escrow for 90 days, so there's no hurry!
