A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of verifying you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you should use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. However, in such a case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also used if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a given electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information as well, just like your business details, for example.

Using a really user-friendly point-and-click interface, you will only have to pick one of your domains or subdomains from a drop-down options menu, pick TXT for the type through a second menu, and then type in the actual content inside a box. This is done in the DNS Records section of Hepsia and very soon after you are ready, the new record is going to be functioning. In order to validate your website with Google, for instance, you'll just have to log in to your account with them several minutes later and ask them to check your domain or subdomain. It does not take longer for a TXT record to go live if you want it for any other reason.
