TXT is a DNS record, that contains info in human-readable form for external sources to get info about a specific Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common case, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain name in case you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a verification of ownership for the business supplying the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which helps to ensure that a particular email address will not be spoofed and that people will not get spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features info about the mail server where your electronic messages originate from and serves as proof that it's a reliable one. Since there are no restrictions concerning the content of this kind of a record, you can include any other info as well.
