TXT is a DNS record, containing info in human-readable form for external sources to get information regarding a specific Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain if you're trying to add it to an online search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a verification of ownership for the corporation supplying the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which makes sure that an e-mail address won't be spoofed and that individuals will not receive spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes information about the mail server where your digital messages originate from and functions as confirmation that it is a trusted one. As there are no rules about the content of this kind of a record, you can include any other information as well.
