TXT is a DNS record, containing info in human-readable form for external sources to gain information regarding a certain domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this type of record is used to prove that you own a domain if you are trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that just the domain name owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a verification of ownership for the company supplying the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that helps to ensure that a particular email address won't 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 arrive from and serves as confirmation that it is a trusted one. As there are no regulations about the content of this sort of a record, you could also include any other information as well.
