TXT is a DNS record, that contains data in human-readable form for external sources to get information about a particular domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, 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 Internet domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the business providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that helps to ensure that an email address isn’t spoofed and that people will not get junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your online messages come from and functions as validation that it is a dependable one. Because there are no rules regarding the content of this type of a record, you can include any other info also.
