TXT is a DNS record, that contains data in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information about a specific domain name or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this kind of record is used to prove that you own a domain in case you are trying to add it to an online search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the Internet domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a verification of ownership for the company supplying the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that ensures that an email address isn’t spoofed and that others will not get unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your digital messages originate from and serves as verification that it's a trusted one. As there are no rules about the content of this type of a record, you could add any other information also.

TXT Records in Cloud Hosting

Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel allows you to handle the DNS records of every domain address or subdomain accommodated within a cloud hosting account without trouble, so if you would like to create a new TXT record for any of them, it will not take you more than just a few seconds to do it. Using a rather user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll only have to select one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down options menu, choose TXT for the type from a second menu, then input the actual content within a box. This is done inside the DNS Records section of Hepsia and very soon after you are done, the new record will be working. If you wish to validate your web site with Google, for example, you will simply have to log in to your account with them a few minutes later and ask them to check your Internet domain or subdomain. It doesn't take more time for a TXT record to go live if you need it for any other purpose.
