TXT is a DNS record, which contains data in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information about a particular domain or subdomain. In the most common case, this type of record is used to prove that you own a domain name in case you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the Internet domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a verification of ownership for the corporation supplying the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which helps to ensure that a particular email address will not be spoofed and that people will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes details about the mail server where your electronic messages come from and serves as validation that it's a trusted one. As there are no standards concerning the content of this type of a record, you could add any other information also.
