TXT is a DNS record, containing info in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information regarding a specific domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this sort of record is used to prove that you own a domain name if you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that just the Internet domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the business providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which ensures that a particular email address won't be spoofed and that others will not get unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes information about the mail server where your electronic messages come from and serves as validation that it is a trusted one. Since there are no restrictions concerning the content of such a record, you could also include any other info as well.
