A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains info in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web sites as well. However, in this situation the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to shield them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a given electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, such as your business details, as an example.

TXT Records in Shared Web Hosting

Our custom Hepsia Control Panel allows you to control the DNS records of any domain name or subdomain accommodated within a shared web hosting account without trouble, so if you would like to create a new TXT record for any of them, it will not take you more than a few seconds to do that. Via a really user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll simply have to pick one of your Internet domain names or subdomains from a drop-down navigation, choose TXT for the type from a second menu, and then type the actual content in a box. This is done in the DNS Records section of Hepsia and soon after you are done, the new record will be active. If you want to validate your site with Google, for example, you'll just need to log in to your account with them a few 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 want it for any other reason.
