A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with an Internet domain as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most frequent 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. Creating this sort of a record can serve as confirmation that you are the Internet domain owner and they will provide the content that you need to include as the value when you set up the record. Another use of a TXT record is to validate that an e mail message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a trusted server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send junk mail making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You may include any other information that you would like to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.

TXT Records in Shared Website Hosting

Our in-house built Hepsia CP allows you to manage the DNS records of every domain address or subdomain accommodated inside a shared website hosting account with ease, so if you would want to set up a new TXT record for any one of them, it will not 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 pick one of your Internet domain names or subdomains from a drop-down menu, choose TXT for the type through a second menu, and type the actual content within a box. This is done in the DNS Records section of Hepsia and soon after you are ready, the new record will be working. If you want to verify your web 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 domain name or subdomain. It doesn't take more time for a TXT record to go live if you need it for any other reason.
