These records hold free form text of any type. A fully qualified domain may have many TXT records. The most common uses for TXT records are Sender Policy Framework (SPF), DomainKeys (DK), DomainKeys IdentifiedE-mail (DKIM). TXT records historically have also been used to contain human readable information about a server, network, data center and other accounting information.

Example: example.com TXT "v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:198.187.31.8 ?all"
