TXT is a DNS record, that contains information in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information regarding a certain Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this type of record is employed to prove that you own a domain name in case you are trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the Internet domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a proof 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, that makes sure that an e-mail address shall not be spoofed and that others will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your digital messages arrive from and serves as proof that it's a trusted one. As there are no regulations regarding the content of such a record, you can add any other info as well.
