TXT is a DNS record, which contains data in human-readable form for external sources to gain information regarding a specific Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common case, such a record is employed to prove that you own a domain name if you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the Internet domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the company providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that ensures that an email address isn’t spoofed and that individuals will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes details about the mail server where your online messages come from and serves as verification that it's a trusted one. Because there are no regulations regarding the content of this kind of a record, you can add any other info also.
