A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with a domain address as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most popular use of a TXT record is to add your website to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides information about the targeted traffic to your Internet site. Creating this type of a record works as proof that you are the domain name 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 e-mail message is sent by the domain name owner and from a trusted hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send junk e-mail making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could add any other information you want to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
TXT Records in Shared Hosting
Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will enable you to manage the DNS records of every domain name or subdomain accommodated within a shared hosting account effortlessly, so if you would like to create a new TXT record for any of them, it won't take you more than only a few seconds to do it. Through a really user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll only have to pick one of your Internet domain names or subdomains from a drop-down navigation, pick TXT for the type through 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 will be functioning. If you want to verify your website with Google, for instance, you'll just have to log in to your account with them several minutes later and ask them to check your domain or subdomain. It doesn't take more time for a TXT record to go live if you want it for any other reason.
