Set Up: Adding a TXT record in cPanel
TXT records is used by administrators to insert any arbitrary text data or notes for various services to read. For example, txt records are often used to define SPF (Sender Policy Framework).
We strongly recommend using the Zone Editor in cPanel to make any DNS zone record changes.
- Click on Zone Editor under Domains in cPanel.
- From the Domains table, locate the addon domain name you want to add an TXT record.
- Click Manage from the Actions column.
- Click Add Record.
- From the Type drop-down menu, select TXT.
- In the Name text field, enter the name for the txt record.
- In the Record text field, enter the text data for the txt record. NOTE: The TXT record text box accepts any data, including invalid data, and does not issue any warnings.
- When ready, click Add Record.
