How to Add and Update TXT Records

A TXT Record is a resource record in the Domain Name System (DNS) that is used to hold readable text information about a particular hostname/zone provided to sources outside your domain.

Before making changes to your DNS, you need to ensure that you're using the correct Name Servers for your domain name by checking on the guide below:

Then, depending on which Name Servers you're using, you can create TXT Records via Account Manager using the steps on this guide.

Otherwise, read the linked guides below to create TXT Records via Hosting or Exchange Manager:

Note: To create a TXT Record for your domain name via Account Manager, you will need Premium DNS, which is a DNS cloud hosting service with complete DNS hosting management tools.

For UK users, TXT Records and all other Premium DNS features are granted for every domain registration without the need to upgrade, as per Registry policies.

Add or Update TXT Records via Account Manager

Follow these steps to add or update TXT Records for your domain name via your Account Manager:

  1. Log In to your Account Manager.
  2. Click Domains on the menu bar at the top of the page.
  3. Click the Domain Name that you wish to manage.
    If you only have one domain, you will automatically be redirected to its management page.
  4. Scroll down to the DNS Settings section and click the Hamburger Menu on the right, then select Add Record.
    (Or to update an existing record: hover your cursor over the TXT Record and click the Modify option that appears on its right.)
  5. Select TXT Record from the drop-down menu, then click the Add button.
  6. Enter the Sub Domain if necessary, followed by the Text Record in the corresponding fields.
  7. Click Update.

You've now added or updated TXT Records for your domain name.

Note: TXT Records are applied immediately but may take up to 2 hours to propagate across the internet. If you have created your TXT Record and have seen no change, please wait for this propagation period to finish. Otherwise, contact us for assistance.
