Improve DNS verification procedure for vendors that host sites others point to
We host some services and our clients point to them using CNAMEs. We want to move from cloud services to web apps but right now it's a massive pain. We have to notify all our clients to first add TXT records for approval, then approve and then ask all of them to switch to new CNAME. Asking clients to do any DNS changes is already a problem and now we have to coordinate with all of them to first add txt records and then point to new service. This makes the whole process really painful even though we are already running all of those domains inside cloud services. Is there any migration mechanism that is less painful than what I described?
Thanks for the idea! We are reviewing the information.

Any news on this? Can we verify domain ownership in any other way without touching DNS?
