TXT is a DNS record, which contains information in human-readable form for external sources to gain information about a specific domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this kind of record is used to prove that you own a domain name in case you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that just the domain address owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the corporation offering the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which helps to ensure that an e-mail address shall not be spoofed and that people will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes details about the mail server where your electronic messages arrive from and functions as verification that it is a trusted one. Because there are no regulations regarding the content of this type of a record, you can include any other information also.
