How do I enter a TXT record for my domain?

A TXT (text) record is used to store arbitrary text data about a domain. It's commonly used for verifying domain ownership, setting up email authentication (SPF, DKIM), etc.

To enter a TXT record for your domain, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and then "Manage Domains" in the drop-down.
  3. Check the box next to your domain name(s) and click on the "Action" button.
  4. Choose "DNS Settings" from the "Action" list.
  5. On the DNS Settings page, select the "Dynadot DNS" setting from the top drop-down menu.
  6. Under the "Domain Record (optional)" section, select "TXT" from the "Record Type" drop-down.
  7. Specify your TXT record in the "IP Address or Target Host" box.
  8. Press the "Save Settings" button to save your changes.


  • If you have been instructed to add an "@", this simply means that the record should be entered under the "Domain Record (optional)" section. The "@" itself should not be entered.
  • If your host provides you with a Host Name/Alias other than the "@" or the domain itself, please add the TXT record under the "Subdomain Record (optional)" section, and fill the Host Name value under the "Subdomain" box.
  • If you have already set name servers for your domain, please add the TXT record in your hosting control panel rather than your Dynadot account.

NOTE: The TXT record cannot be set by itself; you must enter a root domain record type (A/AAAA/CNAME/Forwarding) if you want to use a TXT record. You will not be able to set a TXT record without an additional record type.
