A TXT (Text) record is an informational record you can use to provide additional information about the named service. You can use a TXT record to include notes about a host, or you can format it to provide technical information to servers. Using the name=value format, where the characters preceding the first = sign are the name and everything after the first =sign is the value, you can enter up to 255 characters.

 Note: If your domain is registered at another company, see the Domains registered at another company section below for instructions.

  1. Log in to your My Products page.
  2. If you aren’t automatically directed there, make sure to select the My Products tab.
  3. Next to the domain you want to use, click DNS.
  4. On the DNS Management page, at the bottom of the Records section, click Add and select TXT from the menu.
  5. Complete the following fields:
    • Host – Enter the host name for the TXT record. For example, type @ to map the record directly to your domain name, or enter the subdomain of your host name (labeled Host), such as www or ftp.
    • TXT Value – Enter the value you want to assign to the record.
    • Select how long the server should cache the information. This is called TTL (Time to Live).
