TXT is a DNS record, that contains information in human-readable form for external sources to get info about a particular domain name or subdomain. In the most common case, this type of record is employed to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to an online search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Since just the Internet domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a verification of ownership for the corporation providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which helps to ensure that an e-mail address will not be spoofed and that others will not receive junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features details about the mail server where your online messages originate from and serves as proof that it's a reliable one. Because there are no regulations concerning the content of such a record, you could add any other info also.
