A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with a domain address as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your web site to a search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers info about the web traffic to your web site. Creating such a record may serve as confirmation that you're the Internet domain owner and they'll supply the content you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to verify that an email message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a reliable web server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which prevents any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send spam making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could add any other information that you would like to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
TXT Records in Web Hosting
If you want a TXT record for any purpose for a domain name or a subdomain hosted within a web hosting account on our leading-edge cloud platform, you are going to be able to create one with ease even if you do not have previous experience with such matters. As our Hepsia CP is quite intuitive, you will use a point & click interface and you can set up the new record within a few seconds. This is accomplished using the DNS Records section of Hepsia in which you can manage all records for your domain names and setting up a new TXT record involves choosing an Internet domain or a subdomain and "TXT" from drop-down menus and typing the actual text inside a box - it is as basic as that. It takes merely a few minutes for the new record to become active and to propagate, so if you need it to validate an Internet site with some search engine, for instance, you can ask them to check your website shortly after you have set up the record and you should be all set.
