TXT is a DNS record, that contains data in human-readable form for external sources to obtain info about a certain domain name or subdomain. In the most common situation, this sort 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. Considering that only the Internet domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the corporation offering the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that helps to ensure that an e-mail address isn’t spoofed and that people will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains details about the mail server where your electronic messages arrive from and functions as proof that it is a dependable one. Because there are no restrictions about the content of such a record, you could add any other info as well.
