TXT is a DNS record, that contains info in human-readable form for external sources to get information about a specific Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this type of record is used to prove that you own a domain name if you're trying to add it to an online search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Since just the domain name owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the business supplying the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that ensures that an email address isn’t spoofed and that others will not receive junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features information about the mail server where your online messages arrive from and functions as confirmation that it is a reliable one. Because there are no regulations concerning the content of this kind of a record, you can add any other information as well.
