A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most popular use of a TXT record is to add your site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers information about the web traffic to your web site. Creating such a record serves as confirmation that you're the domain owner and they'll provide the content that you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another application of a TXT record is to confirm that an e mail message is sent by the domain owner and from a trusted server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which prevents any electronic address set up 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 could add any other info which you want to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.

TXT Records in Shared Website Hosting

Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to manage the DNS records of every domain address or subdomain accommodated inside a shared website hosting account easily, so if you would like to create a new TXT record for any of them, it won't take you more than just a few seconds to do this. Via a rather user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll only have to choose one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down navigation, pick TXT for the type through a second menu, then input the actual content inside a box. This is done in the DNS Records section of Hepsia and soon after you are ready, the new record is going to be active. If you wish to confirm your website with Google, for example, you'll just have to log in to your account with them a couple of minutes later and ask them to check your domain address or subdomain. It doesn't take longer for a TXT record to go live if you require it for any other reason.
