A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of verifying you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and which you should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Needless to say, in this situation the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a given digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information as well, like your company details, for instance.

TXT Records in Hosting

Our custom Hepsia CP will permit you to handle the DNS records of every domain name or subdomain accommodated within a hosting account without trouble, so if you want to set up a new TXT record for any of them, it will not take you more than just a few seconds to do this. Via a rather user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll only have to choose one of your domain names or subdomains from a drop-down menu, choose TXT for the type from a second menu, and type in the actual content inside a box. This is done inside the DNS Records section of Hepsia and soon after you are all set, the new record is going to be live. If you would like to validate your site with Google, for instance, you'll just have to log in to your account with them several minutes later and ask them to check your domain or subdomain. It does not take longer for a TXT record to go live if you require it for any other purpose.
