TXT is a DNS record, containing data in human-readable form for external sources to get information regarding a particular domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, such a record is used to prove that you own a domain name in case you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the firm supplying the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which ensures that a particular email address isn’t spoofed and that others will not get spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your electronic messages originate from and functions as verification that it is a dependable one. Because there are no regulations concerning the content of this kind of a record, you can include any other info as well.
