TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to obtain info about a particular domain or subdomain. In the most common case, such a record is used to prove that you own a domain name if you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the Internet domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the business offering the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which makes sure that an e-mail address shall not be spoofed and that others will not get spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains details about the mail server where your digital messages originate from and functions as proof that it's a trusted one. Since there are no restrictions concerning the content of this kind of a record, you can add any other information also.
