TXT Records

    TXT or text records are unformatted text usually with a host or other name. The most common uses for TXT records are Sender Policy Framework (SPF), DomainKeys (DK), and DomainKeys Identified E-mail (DKIM). TXT records historically have also been used to contain human-readable information about a server, network, data center, and other accounting information.

Please note if you have a TXT value that is longer than 255 characters, you will have to split the value into 2 parts using double quotations "". You will have to add both parts as your TXT record value. 

For Example: 

"String One""String Two""String Three"

1. Select your Domain

A. Select Managed DNS
B. Select Domains from the dropdown

2. Select TXT Record

A. Name: The hostname for the record.
