TXT is a DNS record, that contains information in human-readable form for external sources to gain information about a particular domain name or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this kind of record is used to prove that you own a domain in case you are trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that just the domain address owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the corporation supplying the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which helps to ensure that a particular email address won't be spoofed and that others will not receive spam 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's a trusted one. Because there are no rules concerning the content of this kind of a record, you could also include any other info as well.
