TXT Record


This document describes how to add a TXT record to identify and describe a domain name. Most TXT records are used as SPF records (for anti-spam).


  1. Log in to the DNSPod Console.
  2. In "My Domains", click the domain for which to add a TXT record to enter its Record Management page as shown below:
  3. Click Add Records and enter the following record information as shown below:
  • Host: enter a subdomain. For example, when adding a TXT record for www.dnspod.com, you can simply select "www" in the "Host" field. If you only want to add a TXT record for dnspod.com, select "@" in the "Host" field.
  • Type: select "TXT".
  • Split Zone: select "Default"; otherwise, the domain may not be resolvable for certain users.
  • Value: there is no fixed format requirement. In most cases, TXT records are used as SPF records for anti-spam. The most typical example of a TXT record in SPF format is "v=spf1 a mx ~all", which means that only the IP addresses in the A and MX records of this domain have permission to use this domain to send emails.
  • Weight: leave it empty.
  • MX: leave it empty.
  • TTL: it is the cache time and 600s by default. The smaller the value, the faster the change to the record will take effect in various regions.
  1. Click Confirm.
