A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with a domain address as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most widespread use of a TXT record is to add your site to a search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides information about the traffic to your site. Setting up this sort of a record may serve as verification that you're the Internet domain owner and they'll provide the content you need to include as the value when you set up the record. Another application of a TXT record is to confirm 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, that helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send spam making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You can include any other information which you want to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.

TXT Records in Web Hosting

Our in-house built Hepsia CP will allow you to handle the DNS records of any domain or subdomain accommodated in a web hosting account without trouble, so if you would want to create a new TXT record for any one of them, it won't take you more than a few seconds to do this. Using a really user-friendly point-and-click interface, you will only have to select one of your domain names or subdomains from a drop-down navigation, select TXT for the type through a second menu, and then enter the actual content inside a box. This is done inside the DNS Records section of Hepsia and shortly after you are all set, the new record will be live. If you would like to validate your site with Google, for instance, you'll just need to log in to your account with them a couple of 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 require it for any other purpose.
