TXT is a DNS record, containing data in human-readable form for external sources to get information about a certain Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, such a record is used to prove that you own a domain if you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. As just the domain name owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the firm providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that ensures that an email address will not be spoofed and that individuals will not receive junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your online messages come from and functions as verification that it's a dependable one. Since there are no standards about the content of this type of a record, you could add any other info as well.
