TXT is a DNS record, containing info in human-readable form for external sources to gain information regarding a specific domain or subdomain. In the most common case, this type of record is employed to prove that you own a domain if you are trying to add it to an online search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the Internet domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the firm providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that makes sure that an e-mail address will not be spoofed and that others will not get unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains info about the mail server where your online messages originate from and serves as confirmation that it's a dependable one. As there are no restrictions concerning the content of this sort of a record, you can include any other info also.
