TXT is a DNS record, that contains info in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information regarding a specific domain name or subdomain. In the most common case, such a record is used to prove that you own a domain name if you're 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 is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a proof of ownership for the company providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that helps to ensure that an e-mail address will not be spoofed and that others will not get junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features info about the mail server where your digital messages arrive from and functions as validation that it is a dependable one. Because there are no regulations regarding the content of such a record, you can include any other information as well.
