How to fix AWS SES domain verification failures in Godaddy domains

When we try to register a domain with AWS SES, they will ask us to add some TXT records in our DNS records. The sample TXT record that AWS asks us to add will be  as follows :

Name Type Value
_amazonses.example.com TXT pmBGN/7MjnfhTKUZ06Enqq1PeGUaOkw8lGhcfwefcHU=

However, if we add this in our Godaddy console, AWS is unable to verify the domain and it will show a failure notification. The way to fix is simple, just remove our domain name from the Name field. That is, update the record as below:

Name Type Value
_amazonses TXT pmBGN/7MjnfhTKUZ06Enqq1PeGUaOkw8lGhcfwefcHU=

The same is applicable for updating the DKIM records also.
