TXT is a DNS record, that contains information in human-readable form for external sources to get information regarding a certain domain name or subdomain. In the most common situation, this type of record is employed to prove that you own a domain if you are 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 serves as a proof of ownership for the business providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which helps to ensure that a particular email address won't be spoofed and that others will not receive junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features info about the mail server where your digital messages originate from and functions as validation that it is a reliable one. Since there are no standards about the content of this sort of a record, you can add any other information also.
