A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or other. 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 details about the web traffic to your site. Setting up such a record works as verification that you are the Internet domain owner and they'll provide the content you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another use of a TXT record is to validate that an email message is sent by the domain address owner and from a reliable server - this is the so-called SPF security, that prevents any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send junk e-mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could include any other info that you'd like to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
TXT Records in Shared Hosting
Our custom Hepsia Control Panel will allow you to manage the DNS records of every domain name or subdomain accommodated within a shared hosting account with ease, so if you want to create a new TXT record for any of them, it won't take you more than a few seconds to do it. Via a very user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll simply have to select one of your Internet domain names or subdomains from a drop-down navigation, pick TXT for the type from a second menu, and then enter the actual content within a box. This is done in the DNS Records section of Hepsia and shortly after you are done, the new record will be live. If you want to confirm your site with Google, for instance, you'll simply have to log in to your account with them several minutes later and ask them to check your domain name or subdomain. It does not take more time for a TXT record to go live if you want it for any other reason.
TXT Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The custom-built Hepsia web hosting CP, provided with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service, will allow you to set up a new TXT record in no time and without any issues. It is rather user-friendly and features a section committed to the DNS records of your domain names, so after you sign in and navigate to there, you could pick the needed domain address or subdomain from a drop-down list, select "TXT" as the type of your new record and type in the content you want to be the actual text associated with the domain address. You'll find an in depth step-by-step guide inside the Control Panel as well and the new record is going to be operating shortly after you create it, so if you need it for Internet site validation, for instance, just wait for a bit and then begin the verification process with the Internet search engine where you are adding your site. If you have questions about the TXT records, our skilled technical support team is going to be available 24/7 to help you.
