Definition of TXT record
A TXT record is a DNS record that exposes text data to sources outside of your domain. Many TXT records can be found in a top-level domain name. Human-readable facts on servers, networks, databases, and other IT information are frequent in TXT records. Sender Policy Framework (SPF), DomainKeys (DK), and DomainKeys Identified E-mail (DKIM) are some of the applications for TXT records.
