Easyspace and 123-Reg TXT/SRV DNS Records

29 Jul
Most cloud services such as Office 365 or Google Apps require you to verify ownership of your domain with a TXT DNS Record or alternatively an MX record and for additional services it is required to also add SRV records (especially for Office 365 services). We recently had to update this for a domain hosted with Easyspace and 123-Reg and a quick search around their control panels and further investigation proved that this is not possible within your account features. Their control panels only gives you access to create/delete A, MX or CName records ...

To have these records added onto your DNS zone file you need to contact them directly either via phone or email/support ticket and have their engineers create the records for the domain in question. This can take up to 3 hours for them to action , then another few hours to propagate via the Internet.

With cloud services becoming more popular domain registrars should start implementing this functionality to allow the user or domain owner/tech to add these entries just like existing A, MX and CName records.
