A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you must use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. However, in this case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore used when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, like your business details, as an example.
TXT Records in Shared Hosting
Our custom Hepsia CP allows you to manage the DNS records of every domain or subdomain accommodated inside a shared hosting account easily, so if you would like to set up a new TXT record for any of them, it won't take you more than a few seconds to do that. Via a rather user-friendly point-and-click interface, you will only have to choose one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down navigation, pick TXT for the type from a second menu, and then type in the actual content within a box. This is done within the DNS Records section of Hepsia and very soon after you are done, the new record will be functioning. If you wish to verify your web site with Google, for instance, you'll simply have to log in to your account with them several 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 require it for any other reason.

There is also a comprehensive step-by-step guide in the CP as well and the new record is going to be operational soon after you create it, so if you want it for site verification, for example, simply wait for a bit and then commence the verification process with the Internet search engine where you're adding your website.
