TXT is a DNS record, that contains information in human-readable form for external sources to gain information regarding a specific Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Since only the domain name owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the company supplying the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that makes sure that an e-mail address won't be spoofed and that individuals will not receive junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features information about the mail server where your electronic messages originate from and functions as verification that it is a trusted one. Since there are no rules regarding the content of this kind of a record, you can include any other information also.
