A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers information about the traffic to your site. Setting up this sort of a record serves as verification that you are the domain owner and they will provide the content you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another use of a TXT record is to verify that an email message is sent by the domain owner and from a trusted hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which helps prevent any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send unsolicited mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could add any other information you want to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.

TXT Records in Hosting

If you want a TXT record for any purpose for a domain address or a subdomain hosted in a hosting account on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, you are going to be able to create one easily even though you may not have previous experience with such matters. As our Hepsia CP is really intuitive, you will use a point-and-click interface and you can set up the new record within a couple of seconds. This is accomplished via the DNS Records section of Hepsia in which you can manage all records for your domains and creating a new TXT record involves picking out a domain name or a subdomain and "TXT" from drop-down menus and inputting the actual text in a box - it is as easy as that. It takes merely a couple of minutes for the new record to become active and to propagate, so in case you need it to validate an Internet site with some search engine, for instance, you can ask them to check your website soon after you've set up the record and you should be all set.
