TXT is a DNS record, which contains information in human-readable form for external sources to get info about a particular Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this type of record is used to prove that you own a domain in case you are trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Since just the domain address owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record works 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) protection, that makes sure that an e-mail address isn’t spoofed and that people will not receive junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features 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 concerning the content of this sort of a record, you can add any other info also.
