Adding, Editing, or Removing TXT Records

A TXT Record lets you specify any additional information about your domain. This information is saved in the DNS zone.

Adding a TXT Record

You can add a TXT record by accessing the Manage Domains section of 1&1 IONOS. Select a domain and click the DNS tab. Then click Add Record. Leave the Hostname box empty and enter your chosen TXT value in the Value box and then click Save.

Editing TXT Records

Existing TXT records are displayed in the 1&1 IONOS Domain Center in the TXT, CNAME, and SRV Records section. You can edit or remove any of the TXT records in this section at any time. To do so, click Edit Record or Remove Record in the Action column.

Checking a Domain's TXT Records

You can check a domain's TXT records here.

Please Note:

Because of the decentralized structure of the domain name system, it can take up to an hour before the change takes effect everywhere.
