A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that holds info in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of making sure that you're the owner of a particular domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you must use as the record value. The exact same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in such a case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, such as your company details, for example.
TXT Records in Hosting
When you have a hosting account and you need to set up a TXT record for any purpose for an Internet domain or a subdomain hosted inside it, you will be able to do that with a few clicks in your Hepsia CP. The new record is going to be functioning shortly after that, so a search engine, for instance, can pick it up to verify that you're the owner of a particular website within a few minutes. You can set up the TXT record using the DNS Records section of your CP where you will also find all of the other records for your domain addresses. All you will have to do will be to pick the domain or subdomain and also the record type from drop-down menus, input the text content and save the change. If you're not sure how to proceed, you should also check our step-by-step guide, which you could find in the Help section of your account, or you could also get in touch with our tech support team to aid you with the creation of the new record.
