A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with a domain address as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most popular use of a TXT record is to add your web site to a search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers information about the web traffic to your site. Setting up this sort of a record functions as verification that you are the domain address owner and they will supply the content you need to include as the value when you set up the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to verify that an e mail message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a trusted hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, that prevents any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send spam making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could add any other information that you'd like to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
TXT Records in Website Hosting
Our in-house built Hepsia Control Panel will permit you to handle the DNS records of every Internet domain or subdomain accommodated inside a website hosting account without trouble, so if you would want to set up a new TXT record for any of them, it won't take you more than a few seconds to do that. Through a very user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll simply have to pick one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down options menu, pick out TXT for the type from a second menu, and then enter the actual content within a box. This is done inside the DNS Records section of Hepsia and soon after you are done, the new record is going to be working. If you'd like to validate your web site with Google, for instance, you will 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 require it for any other reason.
TXT Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The custom-built Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with our Linux semi-dedicated hosting, will permit you to set up a new TXT record very fast and with no troubles.

You'll find a comprehensive step-by-step guide inside the CP as well and the new record will be running shortly after you create it, so if you require it for web site validation, for example, just wait for a bit and then start the verification procedure with the search engine in which you are adding your site.
