A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a given domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in such a case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains information showing that a given electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information also, like your business details, as an example.
TXT Records in Shared Web Hosting
Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to handle the DNS records of every domain name or subdomain accommodated in a shared web hosting account with ease, so if you want to set up a new TXT record for any one of them, it won't take you more than only a few seconds to do this. Via a rather user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll simply have to select one of your Internet domain names or subdomains from a drop-down options menu, choose TXT for the type from a second menu, and type in the actual content within a box. This is done in the DNS Records section of Hepsia and very soon after you are done, the new record is going to be live. If you want to verify your web site with Google, for instance, you'll just need to log in to your account with them a couple of 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 require it for any other purpose.
