TXT is a DNS record, which contains data in human-readable form for external sources to gain information regarding a particular Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common case, this type of record is used to prove that you own a domain in case you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that just the domain name owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a proof of ownership for the company offering the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that ensures that an e-mail address will not be spoofed and that others will not receive junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features details about the mail server where your digital messages arrive from and serves as verification that it's a dependable one. Because there are no regulations concerning the content of this sort of a record, you can add any other information also.
