A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain address or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you need to 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. Needless to say, in this 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 employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a certain digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information as well, such as your business details, as an example.

TXT Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Our in-house built Hepsia CP will allow you to handle the DNS records of every domain name or subdomain accommodated inside a cloud web hosting account without trouble, so if you would want to create a new TXT record for any one of them, it will not take you more than a few seconds to do this. Via a very user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll simply have to select one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, select TXT for the type through a second menu, then type the actual content inside a box. This is done inside the DNS Records section of Hepsia and very soon after you are ready, the new record will be live. If you want to verify your web site with Google, for example, you'll just need to log in to your account with them several 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 reason.
