I created a website that I'm attempting to host via AWS Amplify.

In order to verify domain ownership, AWS has to look for the following CNAME record associated with my domain.

HOST: _34a8701f94822d17a41e297ef0248615

CNAME: _4cfe52dd9ee1fd0a9d969a67cc36a72b.olprtlswtu.acm-validations.aws.

The issue I'm running into is that Homestead will not let me have a host that begins with (_) and every other way I try, I get an error message that reads, "It appears that our partners are experiencing some technical difficulties, so we were unable to submit your changes at this time. Please ensure that the records you are attempting to submit are valid and try again later."

That CNAME unfortunately is unsupported with our DNS but you can route your domain to cloud flare to add that CNAME. Here are instructions to add your domain to cloud flare to use more advanced DNS records.
