A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of verifying that you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. Needless to say, in this situation the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also employed when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains information showing that a certain digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, such as your business details, for example.

TXT Records in Cloud Website Hosting

Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to handle the DNS records of any Internet domain or subdomain accommodated inside a cloud website hosting account easily, so if you would want to set up a new TXT record for any of them, it will not take you more than only a few seconds to do it. Using a very user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll only have to pick one of your Internet domain names or subdomains from a drop-down options menu, select TXT for the type from a second menu, and then type in the actual content within a box. This is done within the DNS Records section of Hepsia and soon after you are all set, the new record will be live. If you wish to confirm your web site with Google, for example, you'll simply have to log in to your account with them several minutes later and ask them to check your domain or subdomain. It doesn't take longer for a TXT record to go live if you need it for any other reason.
