Add a TXT record

A TXT record (short for text record) is an informational DNS record used to associate arbitrary text with a host or other name. TXT records are most commonly used to verify domain ownership, SSL verification, and email sender policies, such as SPF records and DMARC policies.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy Domain Control Center. (Need help logging in? Find your username or password.)
  2. Select your domain to access the Domain Settings page.
  3. Under Additional Settings, select Manage DNS.
  4. Select ADD below the table of your existing DNS records.
  5. Choose TXT from the record options drop down menu.
  6. Enter the details for your TXT record:
    • Host: Enter the host name for the TXT record. For example, type www to put the record on www.coolexample.com. To put the host on coolexample.com, enter @ in the Host field.
    • TXT Value: The value you are setting as the destination of the Host.
    • TTL: Determine how long the server should cache information.
  7. Select Save to complete your updates.

Please allow up to 48 hours for your DNS changes to take full effect globally.
