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.

NOTE: The Zone Editor only allows you to edit the DNS zone records of your addon domains (ie. domains you’ve added onto your hosting account as an addon domain). If you need to make DNS zone record changes for your primary domain name or domain names you have not added to your account as an addon domain, please use the Edit DNS Zone File tool in your Doteasy Member Zone.

  1. Click on Zone Editor under Domains in cPanel.
