TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to get information about a certain Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this kind of record is used to prove that you own a domain if you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the domain name owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the firm providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which makes sure that an email address isn’t spoofed and that others will not get junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains info about the mail server where your electronic messages come from and serves as validation that it is a trusted one. Because there are no rules regarding the content of this type of a record, you can include any other info as well.
