A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your site to a search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides information about the web traffic to your web site. Creating this kind of a record works as proof that you're the domain name owner and they will supply the content that you need to include as the value when you set up the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to confirm that an e-mail message is sent by the domain address owner and from a trusted web server - this is the so-called SPF security, which prevents any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send out junk e-mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You can include any other information that you'd like to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.

TXT Records in Cloud Hosting

If you want a TXT record for any purpose for a domain name or a subdomain hosted inside a cloud hosting account on our leading-edge cloud platform, you're going to be able to set up one without difficulty even though you may not have previous experience with such matters. As our Hepsia CP is really intuitive, you will use a point-and-click user interface and you can set up the new record within a few seconds. This is achieved with the DNS Records section of Hepsia in which you can handle all records for your domain names and setting up a new TXT record involves choosing a domain or a subdomain and "TXT" from drop-down menus and typing the actual text within a box - it is as basic as that. It takes merely several minutes for the new record to become active and to propagate, so in the event you need it to validate a website with some search engine, for example, you can ask them to check your website after you have set up the record and you should be all set.
