TXT is a DNS record, which contains data in human-readable form for external sources to get information about a particular domain name or subdomain. In the most common case, this sort of record is employed to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Since only the Internet domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a verification of ownership for the firm supplying the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which makes sure that an email address isn’t spoofed and that others will not get junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your digital messages arrive from and serves as verification that it is a reliable one. As there are no restrictions concerning the content of this kind of a record, you could add any other information as well.
