TXT is a DNS record, containing info in human-readable form for external sources to gain information about a certain domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Since only the Internet domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the firm supplying the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that makes sure that an email address isn’t spoofed and that individuals will not get spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes details about the mail server where your electronic messages originate from and serves as verification that it is a trusted one. As there are no rules concerning the content of this type of a record, you can add any other info as well.
