A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which holds information in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of verifying that you are the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and which you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, in this situation 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 employed when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to shield them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a given electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, just like your company details, for instance.
TXT Records in Cloud Website Hosting
Our custom Hepsia CP will permit you to handle the DNS records of every domain or subdomain accommodated in a cloud website hosting account effortlessly, so if you would want to set up a new TXT record for any of them, it won't take you more than only a few seconds to do that. Using a rather 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 out TXT for the type through a second menu, and then type the actual content in a box. This is done in the DNS Records section of Hepsia and shortly after you are ready, the new record will be live. In order to validate your site with Google, for instance, you will simply have to log in to your account with them a few minutes later and ask them to check your domain or subdomain. It does not take more time for a TXT record to go live if you want it for any other purpose.
