Discover more about TXT records - what are they, what's their function and the way in which do they fit into the DNS system.
A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most frequent use of a TXT record is to add your site to a search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers details about the traffic to your Internet site. Setting up such a record can serve as verification that you are the domain owner and they will provide the content you need to include as the value when you set up the record. Another use of a TXT record is to confirm that an email message is sent by the domain name owner and from a reliable hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which prevents any electronic address created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send out junk mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could add any other info that you'd like to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
