Recently I needed to verify my domain with Google's Firestore to allow custom domain on emails sent by the app. I headed to the cPanel to update the TXT and CNAME records as instructed by Google. That is where I encountered an issue Failed to validate args in method GAP::Dns::record_update. A quick internet search proved futile with many having the same issue and hosting companies providing generic answers or telling users to talk to their tech support. The problem is, most tech support response was that it is not possible to do so.
While tinkering with different settings, I accidentaly came across a fairly easy solution. This will only work if you have access to a WebHost Manager (WHM) account. Usually if you have a VPS package with your hosting and can be accessed on port 2086 of your domain (example.com:2086).
DNS changes can take up to 4 hours for propagation but in most cases, I have seen the changes take only 10 - 20 minutes.
