TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to get info about a certain Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this type of record is employed to prove that you own a domain in case you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Since only the Internet domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the firm offering the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which helps to ensure that an e-mail address will not be spoofed and that others will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your digital messages originate from and functions as confirmation that it is a reliable one. Since there are no regulations regarding the content of such a record, you can add any other information also.
