TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to get info about a particular Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common case, this sort of record is employed to prove that you own a domain name if you are trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. As only the domain address owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the business providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which makes sure that an email address will not be spoofed and that individuals will not receive junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features info about the mail server where your digital messages arrive from and functions as validation that it is a reliable one. As there are no rules concerning the content of such a record, you could also include any other info as well.
