TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to gain information about a specific domain name or subdomain. In the most common scenario, such a record is employed to prove that you own a domain name in case you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the domain name owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a verification of ownership for the company supplying the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which helps to ensure that a particular email address isn’t spoofed and that individuals will not receive junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains details about the mail server where your electronic messages arrive from and functions as verification that it's a trusted one. Because there are no standards about the content of this kind of a record, you can add any other information also.
