A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains info in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you must use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, 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 employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a given electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, just like your business details, for instance.

TXT Records in Cloud Hosting

Our in-house built Hepsia CP will enable you to manage the DNS records of any domain name or subdomain accommodated within a cloud hosting account with ease, so if you would like to create 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 select one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, choose TXT for the type through a second menu, then input the actual content in a box. This is done inside the DNS Records section of Hepsia and very soon after you are ready, the new record is going to be live. If you'd like to confirm your web site with Google, for example, you'll just have to log in to your account with them a couple of minutes later and ask them to check your domain address or subdomain. It does not take longer for a TXT record to go live if you want it for any other purpose.
