TXT is a DNS record, that contains info in human-readable form for external sources to obtain info about a particular domain name or subdomain. In the most common case, this type of record is employed to prove that you own a domain name if you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. As just the Internet domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a verification of ownership for the firm providing the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which ensures that a particular email address isn’t spoofed and that individuals will not get junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features details about the mail server where your digital messages come from and serves as validation that it is a trusted one. As there are no regulations regarding the content of this kind of a record, you can add any other information as well.
