A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of verifying that you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet sites as well. However, in such a case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also used in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information as well, such as your business details, as an example.

TXT Records in Cloud Hosting

Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to manage the DNS records of every domain name or subdomain accommodated inside a cloud hosting account without trouble, so if you want to create a new TXT record for any of them, it won't take you more than just a few seconds to do it. Via a really user-friendly point-and-click interface, you will only have to pick one of your domain names or subdomains from a drop-down navigation, pick TXT for the type through a second menu, and input the actual content inside a box. This is done in the DNS Records section of Hepsia and shortly after you are done, the new record will be live. In order to verify your site with Google, for instance, you will just need to log in to your account with them a couple of 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 need it for any other reason.
