A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds data in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of verifying you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and that you must use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your sites as well. However, in this situation 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 if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, like your company details, for instance.

TXT Records in Cloud Hosting

Our in-house built Hepsia CP allows you to control the DNS records of every Internet domain or subdomain accommodated in a cloud hosting account without trouble, so if you would want to set up a new TXT record for any of them, it will not take you more than only a few seconds to do it. Through a really user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll 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, then enter the actual content in a box. This is done within the DNS Records section of Hepsia and very soon after you are all set, the new record is going to be active. If you would like to confirm your web site with Google, for instance, you will just have to log in to your account with them several minutes later and ask them to check your Internet domain or subdomain. It doesn't take longer for a TXT record to go live if you require it for any other purpose.
