TXT is a DNS record, which contains data in human-readable form for external sources to get information about a particular domain name or subdomain. In the most common case, this sort of record is employed to prove that you own a domain if you are trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the domain address owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the firm offering the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that helps to ensure that an e-mail address isn’t spoofed and that people will not receive junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your electronic messages come from and serves as confirmation that it is a trusted one. As there are no standards about the content of this sort of a record, you could also include any other info as well.
