TXT is a DNS record, containing data in human-readable form for external sources to get info about a certain domain name or subdomain. In the most common case, this sort of record is employed to prove that you own a domain name if you are trying to add it to an online search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Considering that just the domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a verification of ownership for the company providing the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which ensures that an email address isn’t spoofed and that individuals will not receive junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains details about the mail server where your online messages originate from and serves as proof that it's a trusted one. Since there are no rules regarding the content of this type of a record, you could also include any other information also.
