If you lose access to your Google Analytics for any reason, Google may require
that you add a .txt file to your top-level domain (root of the domain) in
order to verify site ownership. However, it's currently not possible to add
this kind of file to your site.

To resolve this issue, we recommend contacting Google and requesting an
alternative verification method, such as adding a dedicated meta tag.
