TXT is a DNS record, containing info in human-readable form for external sources to get information regarding a certain Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain name in case you are trying to add it to an online search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the firm supplying the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which helps to ensure that an email address isn’t spoofed and that people will not get spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains info about the mail server where your online messages come from and serves as proof that it is a trusted one. As there are no rules about the content of such a record, you could also include any other info as well.
