TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to gain info about a specific Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this sort of record is employed to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to an online search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the domain address owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the business supplying the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that makes sure that an e-mail address isn’t spoofed and that others will not get junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains details about the mail server where your digital messages originate from and functions as verification that it's a reliable one. As there are no restrictions about the content of such a record, you could add any other info as well.
TXT Records in Web Hosting
Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to control the DNS records of any domain or subdomain accommodated in a web hosting account easily, so if you would want to set up a new TXT record for any of them, it will not take you more than only a few seconds to do it. Using a very user-friendly point-and-click interface, you will only have to pick one of your Internet domain names or subdomains from a drop-down navigation, pick out TXT for the type from a second menu, and type in the actual content in a box. This is done inside the DNS Records section of Hepsia and shortly after you are done, the new record will be live. If you would like to confirm your website with Google, for example, you'll just need to log in to your account with them several minutes later and ask them to check your domain name or subdomain. It doesn't take longer for a TXT record to go live if you want it for any other reason.
