TXT is a DNS record, which contains information in human-readable form for external sources to gain info about a certain domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, such a record is employed to prove that you own a domain in case you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the domain address owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a verification of ownership for the corporation offering the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which helps to ensure that an email address shall not be spoofed and that individuals will not get junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your online messages originate from and serves as proof that it is a reliable one. Since there are no rules concerning the content of such a record, you can include any other information as well.
