A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain address as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most widespread use of a TXT record is to add your website to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers information about the web traffic to your site. Setting up this sort of a record serves as verification that you are the Internet domain owner and they'll provide the content you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another use of a TXT record is to confirm that an e-mail message is sent by the domain owner and from a trusted web server - this is the so-called SPF security, that helps prevent any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send junk e-mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could include any other info that you would like to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.

TXT Records in Cloud Hosting

Our custom Hepsia CP will allow you to control the DNS records of any domain or subdomain accommodated within a cloud hosting account easily, so if you would like to create a new TXT record for any of them, it won't take you more than only a few seconds to do that. Through a rather user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll simply have to choose one of your domain names or subdomains from a drop-down options menu, pick TXT for the type from a second menu, then input the actual content inside a box. This is done inside the DNS Records section of Hepsia and shortly after you are done, the new record is going to be live. In order to confirm your website with Google, for example, you'll just need to log in to your account with them a couple of minutes later and ask them to check your Internet domain or subdomain. It does not take more time for a TXT record to go live if you require it for any other purpose.
