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 other. The most widespread use of a TXT record is to add your website to a search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers information about the web traffic to your site. Creating this sort of a record can serve as verification that you are the domain address owner and they'll provide the content that you should include as the value when you create the record. Another use of a TXT record is to validate that an e-mail message is sent by the domain owner and from a trusted web server - this is the so-called SPF security, that prevents any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send unsolicited mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You can include any other information which you want to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.

TXT Records in Cloud Website Hosting

Our custom Hepsia CP will enable you to control the DNS records of every domain address or subdomain accommodated within a cloud website hosting account without difficulty, so if you would want to create a new TXT record for any of them, it won't take you more than a few seconds to do it. Using a rather user-friendly point-and-click interface, you will only have to pick one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down menu, choose TXT for the type from a second menu, and enter the actual content within a box. This is done in the DNS Records section of Hepsia and soon after you are all set, the new record is going to be active. In order to confirm your web site with Google, for instance, you will simply have to log in to your account with them a couple of minutes later and ask them to check your domain or subdomain. It doesn't take longer for a TXT record to go live if you need it for any other purpose.
