TXT is a DNS record, that contains data in human-readable form for external sources to gain info about a certain Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common case, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain if you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Considering that just the Internet domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the firm providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that helps to ensure that an 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 serves as validation that it is a reliable one. Because there are no standards about the content of this sort of a record, you could add any other information also.
