Common mistakes when verifying with file
Wrong file location or access rights
We might be unable to access your verification file due to it being in the wrong location or protected with specific access rights. Try manually verifying that you are able to access the file.
There might be characters other than detectify in the file. Make sure the file contains no additional hidden characters.
If you’re still having problems with verification, send an email with your details and a description of the issue to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to help.
