TXT is a DNS record, that contains data in human-readable form for external sources to obtain info about a specific domain or subdomain. In the most common case, this kind of record is used to prove that you own a domain name in case you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Since only the domain address owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a verification of ownership for the corporation offering the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that ensures that an e-mail address shall not be spoofed and that people will not receive junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes details about the mail server where your online messages originate from and functions as validation that it is a trusted one. As there are no standards concerning the content of this type of a record, you can add any other information as well.
