A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your site to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides details about the traffic to your site. Setting up this type of a record works as proof that you are the domain name owner and they will supply the content you should include as the value when you create the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to verify that an e mail message is sent by the domain name owner and from a reliable web server - this is the so-called SPF security, which helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send out unsolicited mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You may include any other info you want to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.

TXT Records in Website Hosting

Our custom Hepsia Control Panel allows you to handle the DNS records of any Internet domain or subdomain accommodated within a website hosting account without trouble, so if you would want to create a new TXT record for any of them, it will not take you more than a few seconds to do this. Through a very user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll only have to select one of your Internet domain names or subdomains from a drop-down options menu, pick out TXT for the type through a second menu, then enter the actual content inside a box. This is done within the DNS Records section of Hepsia and shortly after you are done, the new record will be functioning. In order to validate your web site with Google, for example, you will simply have to log in to your account with them a few minutes later and ask them to check your Internet domain or subdomain. It doesn't take more time for a TXT record to go live if you want it for any other purpose.
