  • 0

Login to your client area, to add a TXT record in cPanel involves a few straightforward steps. Here’s a general guide:

  1. Access cPanel:

    • Log in to your cPanel account using your credentials.
  2. Locate DNS Zone Editor:

    • In the cPanel dashboard, look for the "Domains" or "Advanced" section.
    • Find and click on the "DNS Zone Editor" or a similar option. This is where you manage DNS records for your domains.
  3. Select Domain:

    • If you have multiple domains, choose the domain you want to add the TXT record to.
  4. Add TXT Record:

    • Look for the "Add Record" or "Add DNS Record" button and click on it.
    • Choose "TXT" as the type of record you want to add.
  5. Enter Record Details:

    • In the "Name" or "Host" field, enter the part of the domain name that precedes the domain itself. For example, if you're adding a TXT record for, the "Name" field might be something like subdomain or @ (to denote the root domain).
    • In the "TXT Data" field, enter the actual text content of your TXT record. This could be SPF records for email verification, DKIM keys, or any other TXT record information provided by your service provider.
  6. Save the Record:

    • After entering the details, click on "Add Record" or "Save Record" to save your changes.
  7. Verify the Record:

    • Once saved, you can verify the TXT record by using tools like nslookup or dig, or by checking DNS propagation using online tools. This step ensures that the TXT record is properly configured and accessible globally.

Remember that DNS changes can take some time to propagate across the internet, so be patient if you don't see the changes immediately reflected. It usually takes a few hours, although it can sometimes be faster or slower depending on various factors.
