TXT is a DNS record, containing data in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information regarding a specific Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common case, this kind of record is used to prove that you own a domain name if you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Since just the domain address owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a verification of ownership for the company providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which helps to ensure that an email address will not be spoofed and that others will not get spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features information about the mail server where your online messages originate from and functions as validation that it's a reliable one. Since there are no rules regarding the content of this type of a record, you could add any other info also.
