TXT is a DNS record, containing info in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information regarding a specific Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common case, this kind of record is used to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the company providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that makes sure that an email address isn’t spoofed and that others will not receive spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features information about the mail server where your electronic messages originate from and functions as validation that it is a trusted one. As there are no standards concerning the content of this kind of a record, you can include any other information also.
