How to verify your host?
Once you register, you need to verify your host to start the scanning process. Without this, we will not be able to verify the website’s ownership and cannot continue the process.
To verify your hosts, please visit the Settings page and click Hosts.
1. ) To reach the Settings page, click on the left-top or click your icon image on the right-top. Once you click your image, you will see a dropdown menu.
Once in Settings, you will see the following image.
To verify your host, you must be able to access your hostname provider, files hosted on the server, or modify the page content.
2. ) When you go bottom of this page, you will see an orange button saying ‘Add new host’.
Add your host and url title. Then, click the button again.
3. ) After adding your host, you will have to choose the verification method. There are 3 types: DNS record, Text file and Meta tag.
4. ) Once you choose one of the methods from the list, you will see instructions.
In this example, you would add your unique hash value to your page metadata.
If you are fully finished adding your host, you will see ‘Verified’ on the left side of your url. This might take some time as our server checks for verification.
Now that you finished your host verification, the scanning process for your website will being automatically.
It will be done within approximately 24 hours. Sit back and relax, soon you will see your scans on storyfier!
