TXT is a DNS record, that contains data in human-readable form for external sources to gain information regarding a particular domain name or subdomain. In the most common situation, such a record is used to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to an online search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Since only the Internet domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the corporation offering the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that helps to ensure that an email address won't be spoofed and that individuals will not get junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features information about the mail server where your digital messages originate from and functions as verification that it is a reliable one. Because there are no regulations about the content of such a record, you can include any other information also.
