TXT is a DNS record, which contains data in human-readable form for external sources to get info about a specific domain name or subdomain. In the most common case, this type of record is employed to prove that you own a domain if you are trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that just the domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a verification of ownership for the business supplying the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which ensures that a particular email address isn’t spoofed and that people will not get unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes information about the mail server where your online messages come from and functions as confirmation that it's a dependable one. Because there are no rules regarding the content of this type of a record, you can include any other information as well.
