TXT is a DNS record, that contains data in human-readable form for external sources to gain information about a particular domain name or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this sort of record is used to prove that you own a domain name if you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Considering that just the domain name owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the business providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that helps to ensure that a particular email address isn’t spoofed and that people will not receive spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features details about the mail server where your electronic messages arrive from and functions as confirmation that it's a trusted one. As there are no standards concerning the content of this type of a record, you could also include any other information as well.
