A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and that you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, in such a 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 in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains information showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, like your company details, for example.

TXT Records in Website Hosting

Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to manage the DNS records of every domain name or subdomain accommodated within a website hosting account without trouble, so if you would like to set up a new TXT record for any one of them, it will not take you more than just a few seconds to do it. Via a very user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll only have to select one of your domain names or subdomains from a drop-down menu, choose TXT for the type from a second menu, then enter the actual content inside a box. This is done within the DNS Records section of Hepsia and soon after you are all set, the new record is going to be active. In order to validate your website with Google, for instance, you will just have to log in to your account with them a few minutes later and ask them to check your domain name or subdomain. It doesn't take more time for a TXT record to go live if you need it for any other reason.
