TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to get information about a specific domain or subdomain. In the most common case, such a record is employed to prove that you own a domain if you are trying to add it to an online search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Since only the domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the company supplying the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which ensures that an email address shall not be spoofed and that individuals will not get junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains info about the mail server where your digital messages come from and serves as proof that it's a trusted one. Since there are no rules about the content of this kind of a record, you can add any other information as well.
