TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information about a specific domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, such a record is employed to prove that you own a domain if you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Since just the domain address owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a verification of ownership for the firm providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that ensures that an e-mail address shall not be spoofed and that individuals will not receive junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your digital messages arrive from and serves as validation that it's a reliable one. Since there are no restrictions concerning the content of this type of a record, you could also include any other information as well.

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 options menu, choose TXT for the type through a second menu, and enter the actual content in a box. This is done within the DNS Records section of Hepsia and very soon after you are all set, the new record is going to be live. If you'd like to validate 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 name or subdomain. It does not take longer for a TXT record to go live if you need it for any other purpose.
