TXT is a DNS record, that contains data in human-readable form for external sources to get information regarding a particular domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this type of record is employed to prove that you own a domain name if you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Since just the domain name owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a proof of ownership for the business providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that helps to ensure that an e-mail address will not be spoofed and that others will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes details about the mail server where your electronic messages arrive from and serves as validation that it's a trusted one. As there are no rules concerning the content of this sort of a record, you could add any other information as well.
