TXT is a DNS record, which contains information in human-readable form for external sources to get information about a specific domain or subdomain. In the most common case, such a record is employed to prove that you own a domain in case you are trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that just the domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the corporation providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that ensures that an email address shall not be spoofed and that people will not receive junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your electronic messages originate from and serves as proof that it is a reliable one. As there are no restrictions concerning the content of this type of a record, you can include any other information also.
