Return to FAQ/Help System menu

TXT-records are informational for people only and are not required for any DNS functions.

The format in which to enter the data is as follows:

Raw form:
@ 86400 TXT "text line 1" "text line 2"

Where @ is the root zone name, 86400 is the TTL, each line of text is in quotes after the TXT record type.
