TXT is a DNS record, which contains information in human-readable form for external sources to gain information about a certain domain name or subdomain. In the most common situation, this kind of record is used to prove that you own a domain name if you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the Internet domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the business providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that helps to ensure that an email address isn’t spoofed and that people will not receive junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your digital messages come from and serves as proof that it is a trusted one. As there are no restrictions concerning the content of this kind of a record, you could also include any other information as well.
