TXT is a DNS record, that contains data in human-readable form for external sources to gain information about a specific domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this sort of record is employed to prove that you own a domain if you're trying to add it to an online search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the domain address owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the business supplying the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that helps to ensure that an e-mail address won't be spoofed and that individuals will not get unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your digital messages originate from and functions as verification that it's a reliable one. Because there are no rules about the content of this sort of a record, you can include any other information also.

Via a really user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll only have to choose one of your domain names or subdomains from a drop-down menu, choose TXT for the type from a second menu, and input the actual content within a box. This is done inside the DNS Records section of Hepsia and shortly after you are done, the new record is going to be functioning. If you'd like to verify your web site with Google, for example, you'll simply have to log in to your account with them a couple of minutes later and ask them to check your Internet domain or subdomain. It does not take more time for a TXT record to go live if you require it for any other reason.
