TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to get information about a particular Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain name in case you are trying to add it to an online search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the Internet domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the firm supplying the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that helps to ensure that an email address won't be spoofed and that people will not receive spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your online messages come from and functions as validation that it's a trusted one. Because there are no standards regarding the content of this kind of a record, you can add any other info as well.
