TXT is a DNS record, that contains data in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information regarding a particular domain name or subdomain. In the most common case, this sort of record is used to prove that you own a domain if you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that just the domain address owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the firm providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which makes sure that a particular email address isn’t spoofed and that individuals will not get spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes information about the mail server where your electronic messages originate from and serves as proof that it's a trusted one. Since there are no restrictions regarding the content of this sort of a record, you can include any other information as well.
