TXT is a DNS record, that contains info in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information about a certain domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, such a record is used to prove that you own a domain name if you are trying to add it to an online search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Since only the domain address owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof 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, which helps to ensure that an email address will not be spoofed and that individuals will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features details about the mail server where your electronic messages originate from and serves as verification that it's a reliable one. As there are no standards regarding the content of this type of a record, you could add any other information as well.
