Do I need spaces in my TXT (DNS) records?

Posted about 2 years ago

When editing the raw DNS zone file, the data (value) of the TXT record needs to be wrapped in double-quotes if it contains spaces (SPF and DKIM records).

However, you often have a editor which does the leg work for you and wraps quotations round the value of your TXT record (such is the case if you’re using a WYSIWYG/form) I generally like to edit the DNS file directly and wrap with quotes to ensure it’s not going to error
