A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you should use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Needless to say, in this case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore used in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, like your company details, as an example.

TXT Records in Web Hosting

Our in-house built Hepsia CP will allow you to manage the DNS records of every domain address or subdomain accommodated inside a web hosting account with ease, so if you 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. Using 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, choose TXT for the type from a second menu, then type the actual content within a box. This is done within the DNS Records section of Hepsia and soon after you are done, the new record is going to be working. In order to validate your site with Google, for example, you'll simply 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 doesn't take longer for a TXT record to go live if you need it for any other reason.
