TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information about a certain domain or subdomain. In the most common case, such a record is employed to prove that you own a domain name in case you are trying to add it to an online search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that just the domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the company providing the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which helps to ensure that an email address isn’t spoofed and that individuals will not get junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your digital messages originate from and functions as validation that it is a trusted one. As there are no rules concerning the content of such a record, you can add any other info as well.
