IMPORTANT! A TXT record contains information that is primarily intended for entities outside of your domain. The text within this record can be read by both humans and machines and serves multiple purposes, such as verifying domain ownership, authorizing senders through the Sender Policy Framework (SPF), incorporating digital email signatures, and preventing outbound spam.
Note: Identify your domain host. If you have multiple domains to verify, you will need to add a text record for each domain.
Step 1: Log in to your DNS Management Interface
Sign in to your domain registrar or DNS hosting provider’s website (e.g., GoDaddy, Namecheap, Google Domains). You’ll need access to your domain’s DNS management interface.
Step 2: Find the DNS Records Section
Locate the section in the interface where you can manage DNS records. This may be labeled as “DNS Management,” “Name Server Management,” “DNS Records,” or something similar, depending on your provider.
Step 3: Add a New TXT Record
Look for an option to add or edit DNS records and select “TXT” as the record type. Enter the desired information for your TXT record. This typically includes a “Name” or “Host” field (can be left blank or “@”) and a “Value” field where you enter the text content of the TXT record.
Step 4: Save or Publish Changes
After configuring the TXT record details, save your changes. This action will update your domain’s DNS settings.
Step 5: Verify the TXT Record
TXT records often require some time to propagate across DNS servers. You can verify that the record has been successfully added by using DNS lookup tools or services or online DNS checkers. Always double-check the accuracy of the record to avoid potential issues.
