TXT is a DNS record, which contains information in human-readable form for external sources to get information regarding a particular Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common case, this sort of record is used to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to an online search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a verification of ownership for the firm offering the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that helps to ensure that an email address isn’t spoofed and that people will not get unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains details about the mail server where your digital messages come from and functions as verification that it is a trusted one. Since there are no rules regarding the content of this sort of a record, you can add any other info as well.
