TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to get info about a certain domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this sort of record is used to prove that you own a domain name in case you're trying to add it to an online search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Since just the domain name owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a proof of ownership for the business providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that ensures that an e-mail address won't be spoofed and that individuals will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains details about the mail server where your digital messages originate from and functions as confirmation that it is a dependable one. Since there are no regulations about the content of this sort of a record, you can include any other information also.
