TXT is a DNS record, containing data in human-readable form for external sources to get information regarding a certain Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this type of record is employed to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some traffic analytics platform.

Another popular use for this type of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which helps to ensure that an e-mail address will not be spoofed and that others will not receive junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains info about the mail server where your online messages originate from and serves as confirmation that it is a dependable one. Since there are no rules concerning the content of this type of a record, you could also include any other information also.
