In the most common scenario, this sort of record is used to prove that you own a domain in case you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the domain name owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a verification of ownership for the firm offering the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that makes sure that an email address won't be spoofed and that individuals will not receive junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features info about the mail server where your electronic messages arrive from and functions as validation that it is a trusted one. Because there are no restrictions concerning the content of this sort of a record, you could add any other info as well.
