TXT is a DNS record, containing info in human-readable form for external sources to get info about a particular domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this type 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 website traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the Internet domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a verification of ownership for the company providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which makes sure that a particular email address will not be spoofed and that others will not get junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your electronic messages come from and serves as validation that it's a trusted one. Because there are no standards regarding the content of this kind of a record, you can include any other info also.
