TXT is a DNS record, which contains information in human-readable form for external sources to get info about a specific Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this kind of record is used to prove that you own a domain if you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the domain name owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a proof of ownership for the corporation providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which makes sure that a particular email address isn’t spoofed and that others will not receive junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes details about the mail server where your electronic messages come from and serves as proof that it's a trusted one. As there are no rules about the content of such a record, you can add any other information also.
