TXT is a DNS record, which contains information in human-readable form for external sources to get information about a specific domain name or subdomain. In the most common scenario, such a record is used to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the corporation offering the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that makes sure that an e-mail address won't be spoofed and that people will not get unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your electronic messages arrive from and functions as proof that it is a reliable one. Because there are no regulations concerning the content of this kind of a record, you can include any other information also.

TXT Records in Web Hosting

Our custom Hepsia CP allows you to manage the DNS records of any Internet domain or subdomain accommodated in a web hosting account easily, so if you would want to set up a new TXT record for any of them, it won't take you more than a few seconds to do it. Via a rather user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll only have to pick one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down navigation, select TXT for the type through a second menu, and then type in the actual content inside a box. This is done inside the DNS Records section of Hepsia and very soon after you are all set, the new record will be active. In order to validate your site with Google, for instance, you'll simply have to log in to your account with them a couple of minutes later and ask them to check your domain name or subdomain. It doesn't take longer for a TXT record to go live if you require it for any other purpose.
