A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you must use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet sites as well. However, in this case 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 used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a particular digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any type of other information also, such as your business details, for instance.

TXT Records in Web Hosting

Our custom Hepsia CP will permit you to handle the DNS records of every Internet domain or subdomain accommodated within a web hosting account without trouble, so if you want to set up a new TXT record for any one of them, it won't take you more than a few seconds to do this. Via a rather user-friendly point-and-click interface, you will only have to choose one of your domain names or subdomains from a drop-down navigation, pick TXT for the type through a second menu, and enter the actual content inside a box. This is done in the DNS Records section of Hepsia and shortly after you are all set, the new record is going to be active. If you want to validate your site with Google, for example, you'll simply have to log in to your account with them a couple of minutes later and ask them to check your domain address or subdomain. It doesn't take longer for a TXT record to go live if you need it for any other reason.
