TXT is a DNS record, that contains info in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information about a certain Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain if you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a verification of ownership for the business offering the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which helps to ensure that an e-mail address will not be spoofed and that individuals will not get unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features details about the mail server where your electronic messages come from and serves as proof that it's a reliable one. Because there are no standards concerning the content of this type of a record, you can include any other information also.
