A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most typical use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers info about the targeted traffic to your site. Creating such a record serves as confirmation that you are the Internet domain owner and they will provide the content you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another application of a TXT record is to verify that an e mail message is sent by the domain address owner and from a trusted web server - this is the so-called SPF security, that prevents any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send unsolicited mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You may include any other info that you'd like to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.

TXT Records in Cloud Website Hosting

Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to handle the DNS records of any domain address or subdomain accommodated in a cloud website hosting account without trouble, so if you would like to set up a new TXT record for any one of them, it won't take you more than just a few seconds to do that. Via 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 navigation, select TXT for the type from a second menu, then type in the actual content inside a box. This is done in the DNS Records section of Hepsia and very soon after you are done, the new record will be working. If you want to validate your site with Google, for instance, you'll just have 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 longer for a TXT record to go live if you need it for any other purpose.
