TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to gain information about a specific Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this type of record is employed 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 name owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the firm offering the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which makes sure that an e-mail address won't be spoofed and that individuals will not get junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your online messages originate from and functions as proof that it's a reliable one. As there are no standards concerning the content of this kind of a record, you can add any other information as well.
