TXT is a DNS record, that contains data in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information about a particular Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain name if you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the domain address owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the firm supplying the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which makes sure that an email address isn’t spoofed and that individuals will not get junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features information about the mail server where your electronic messages come from and functions as proof that it is a reliable one. Since there are no rules concerning the content of this type of a record, you can add any other info also.
