The DNS editing instructions I have tell me to put @ as the Name for a new TXT record, but I get the error "You must specify a valid zone name." What do I do?

You have to add a new TXT Record to validate your domain. The instructions tell you to put @ as the Name (Host), and give you the text to put into the Value.

New TXT Record

Ok, no problem. When you go into the Zone editor in cPanel, you select to add a new TXT record, and type @ for the Name, just like the instructions said. In return, cPanel tells you "You must specify a valid zone name."

TXT Record error

Instead of typing @, type the domain name.
