TXT is a DNS record, that contains info in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information about a specific Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common case, such a record is used to prove that you own a domain name if you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Since only the domain name owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the company providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that ensures that an email address won't be spoofed and that people will not get junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features details about the mail server where your online messages originate from and functions as verification that it is a reliable one. Because there are no standards about the content of this sort of a record, you can include any other information as well.

TXT Records in Shared Web Hosting

If you require a TXT record for any purpose for a domain name or a subdomain hosted in a shared web hosting account on our leading-edge cloud platform, you'll be able to set up one without difficulty even if you do not have previous experience with such matters. As our Hepsia Control Panel is really intuitive, you'll use a point-and-click user interface and you can create the new record within a couple of seconds. This is done using the DNS Records section of Hepsia where you can control all records for your domains and setting up a new TXT record involves selecting a domain or a subdomain and "TXT" from drop-down menus and typing the actual text inside a box - it is as easy as that. It takes merely a few minutes for the new record to become active and to propagate, so if you need it to verify an Internet site with some search engine, for example, you can ask them to check your site shortly after you've created the record and you should be all set.
