TXT is a DNS record, that contains information in human-readable form for external sources to get info about a specific domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this type of record is used to prove that you own a domain in case you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Since only the domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the business providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that ensures that a particular email address will not be spoofed and that people will not get junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features info about the mail server where your online messages originate from and functions as confirmation that it is a reliable one. Because there are no rules regarding the content of this type of a record, you could add any other information as well.
