TXT is a DNS record, which contains data in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information about a certain domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this type of record is employed to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a verification of ownership for the company offering the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which ensures that an email address will not be spoofed and that people will not get spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features information about the mail server where your digital messages arrive from and serves as validation that it's a trusted one. As there are no rules regarding the content of this sort of a record, you could also include any other information also.

TXT Records in Shared Web Hosting

If you require a TXT record for any purpose for a domain name or a subdomain hosted within a shared web hosting account on our leading-edge cloud platform, you are going to be able to create one without difficulty even though you may not have previous experience with such matters. As our Hepsia Control Panel is very intuitive, you'll use a point & click user interface and you can create the new record within a few seconds. This is accomplished via the DNS Records section of Hepsia where you can control all records for your domain names and setting up a new TXT record includes choosing a domain name or a subdomain and "TXT" from drop-down menus and inputting the actual text within a box - it is as basic as that. It takes just a couple of minutes for the new record to become active and to propagate, so in case you need it to confirm a website with some search engine, for instance, you can ask them to check your website shortly after you've set up the record and you should be all set.
