TXT is a DNS record, that contains info in human-readable form for external sources to get information regarding a particular Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this type of record is used to prove that you own a domain if you are trying to add it to an online search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the Internet domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a verification of ownership for the business supplying the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that makes sure that an email address shall not be spoofed and that people will not get junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your online messages arrive from and serves as validation that it is a trusted one. Because there are no standards concerning the content of such a record, you could also include any other info as well.
