TXT is a DNS record, that contains data in human-readable form for external sources to gain information regarding a certain domain name or subdomain. In the most common situation, this type of record is used to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to an online search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the domain address owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a proof of ownership for the firm providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which makes sure that an e-mail address will not be spoofed and that others will not receive spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features information about the mail server where your electronic messages originate from and functions as proof that it is a trusted one. Because there are no regulations about the content of this kind of a record, you can include any other information as well.
