domain name system – Why don’t I get the TXT records I was expecting?


I’m using Google Domains to manage DNS of a domain I own. In Google Domains, I’ve configured a TXT record _acme-challenge with a specific value. I was expecting to see this value when doing:

dig -t TXT pelicandd.com @ns-cloud-e1.googledomains.com

but instead I get:

; <<>> DiG 9.11.3-... <<>> -t TXT pelicandd.com @ns-cloud-e1.googledomains.com

Why don’t I see the TXT record? What am I doing wrong?
