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 case, this type of record is used to prove that you own a domain name in case you are trying to add it to an online search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Since just the domain address owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the firm supplying the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that helps to ensure that an e-mail address won't be spoofed and that others will not get spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features information about the mail server where your electronic messages come from and serves as confirmation that it is a reliable one. Because there are no regulations about the content of this type of a record, you can include any other info also.
