What are Text (TXT) Records and how do I edit/add them?

Note: Any changes that you make to your Advanced DNS settings can interrupt your service. If you are not an advanced user, we strongly recommend that you not change these settings without consulting our support department.


To create TXT records please follow these steps:

Step 1.

Login to your   account and select Domain Manager.

Step 2.
Click directly on your domain name to access the domain editing page.

Step 3.
On the domain editing page, select the DNS tab.

Scroll down to Manage Advanced DNS Records and click on New Advanced DNS Manager

Tables can't be imported directly. Please insert an image of your table which can be found here.

Important:

Step 4.

To add a TXT record, click the button to Add New Record

Set the Record Type as TXT, and fill in the Host and Record fields as instructed by your hosting service provider. You can leave the TTL as it is. Click the green button to Save.

If you are hosted with Basehost and looking to prevent email spoofing, a TXT record can be applied to your domain so that only Basehost's mail servers are authorized to send mail on behalf of your domain.

Tables can't be imported directly. Please insert an image of your table which can be found here.

Note:

Host : your domain name
Record "v=spf1 mx ip4:54.236.124.210 ip4:54.208.1.230 -all"


To edit an existing TXT record, click the Edit button update the Host and/or Points To field, as instructed by your hosting service provider.

You can leave the TTL as it is. Click the green button to Save.

 

Note: If your domain was already set to Park with Basehost, Forward Domain, or Host with Basehost, these records should take about 1 hour to propagate. If your domain was previously set to Use Third Party Hosting, updates can take up to 24-48 hours to propagate worldwide, though we find it's typically much closer to 6-12 hours.
