TXT is a DNS record, that contains info in human-readable form for external sources to obtain info about a certain domain name or subdomain. In the most common situation, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain name if you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. As just the domain name owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the corporation providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which makes sure that an email address will not be spoofed and that people will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains info about the mail server where your digital messages arrive from and serves as validation that it is a reliable one. Since there are no regulations about the content of this type of a record, you can include any other information also.
