A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your site to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides information about the targeted traffic to your website. Setting up this type of a record works as verification that you're the domain address owner and they will provide the content that you should include as the value when you create the record. Another application of a TXT record is to confirm that an e mail message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a trusted web server - this is the so-called SPF security, which prevents any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send spam making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You may include any other information that you'd like to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
TXT Records in Hosting
Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to handle the DNS records of any Internet domain or subdomain accommodated inside a hosting account without difficulty, so if you want to create 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 very user-friendly point-and-click interface, you will only have to pick one of your domain names or subdomains from a drop-down navigation, pick TXT for the type from a second menu, and enter the actual content in a box. This is done inside the DNS Records section of Hepsia and very soon after you are all set, the new record is going to be active. In order to confirm your web site with Google, for instance, you'll just need 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 longer for a TXT record to go live if you need it for any other reason.
