TXT is a DNS record, which contains data in human-readable form for external sources to get information regarding a specific Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this kind of record is used to prove that you own a domain name if you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that just the Internet domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the business offering the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that makes sure that a particular email address isn’t spoofed and that individuals will not get spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features information about the mail server where your electronic messages come from and serves as proof that it is a reliable one. Since there are no regulations about the content of this kind of a record, you could also include any other info as well.
