TXT is a DNS record, that contains data in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information about a certain Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common case, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain in case you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Considering that just the domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the corporation providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which helps to ensure that an email address won't be spoofed and that individuals will not receive junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains info about the mail server where your online messages originate from and serves as validation that it is a trusted one. As there are no regulations regarding the content of this type of a record, you could add any other info also.
