TXT is a DNS record, which contains data in human-readable form for external sources to gain information regarding a specific domain name or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this sort of record is used to prove that you own a domain if you're trying to add it to an online search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. As just the Internet domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the company supplying the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that helps to ensure that an email address isn’t spoofed and that people will not get spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your digital messages arrive from and functions as verification that it's a reliable one. Since there are no standards concerning the content of such a record, you can add any other info as well.
