TXT is a DNS record, that contains info in human-readable form for external sources to gain info about a specific domain name or subdomain. In the most common case, this type of record is employed to prove that you own a domain name if you're trying to add it to an online search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the domain address owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a proof of ownership for the company offering the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that helps to ensure that a particular email address will not be spoofed and that others will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your online messages come from and functions as validation that it's a reliable one. As there are no regulations about the content of this kind of a record, you can include any other information as well.
TXT Records in Shared Hosting
Our in-house built Hepsia CP allows you to manage the DNS records of every domain name or subdomain accommodated in a shared hosting account easily, so if you want to create a new TXT record for any of them, it will not take you more than only a few seconds to do it. Through a rather user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll simply have to choose one of your domain names or subdomains from a drop-down options menu, pick out TXT for the type from a second menu, then 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 live. If you want to validate your web site with Google, for example, you'll just have to log in to your account with them several minutes later and ask them to check your Internet domain or subdomain. It does not take longer for a TXT record to go live if you need it for any other purpose.
