TXT is a DNS record, that contains information in human-readable form for external sources to gain information regarding a specific 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 online search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. As only the domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the business offering the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that makes sure that an e-mail address isn’t spoofed and that people will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features info about the mail server where your digital messages originate from and functions as confirmation that it is a reliable one. Because there are no regulations regarding the content of such a record, you can add any other information as well.
