TXT is a DNS record, which contains information in human-readable form for external sources to get information about a specific domain name or subdomain. In the most common situation, this type of record is used to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Since only the Internet domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the corporation providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that ensures that an e-mail address isn’t spoofed and that people will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains info about the mail server where your online messages originate from and functions as proof that it's a reliable one. Since there are no regulations regarding the content of this kind of a record, you can add any other info as well.

TXT Records in Cloud Hosting

Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to manage the DNS records of every domain name or subdomain accommodated within a cloud hosting account easily, so if you want to set up a new TXT record for any of them, it won't take you more than just a few seconds to do this. Using a really user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll simply have to choose one of your domain names or subdomains from a drop-down menu, pick TXT for the type through a second menu, and input the actual content inside a box. This is done in the DNS Records section of Hepsia and very soon after you are ready, the new record will be working. If you'd like to validate your website with Google, for example, you'll simply have to log in to your account with them a few minutes later and ask them to check your domain address or subdomain. It doesn't take more time for a TXT record to go live if you want it for any other purpose.
