TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to gain information regarding a specific Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, such a record is employed to prove that you own a domain name in case you are trying to add it to an online search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. As only the Internet domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a proof of ownership for the firm providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that helps to ensure that a particular email address will not be spoofed and that people will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your electronic messages originate from and functions as verification that it is a trusted one. As there are no rules concerning the content of such a record, you could also include any other info as well.
