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.

You can create multiple TXT records, but their cumulative lengths cannot exceed 512 characters.

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