TXT is a DNS record, that contains information in human-readable form for external sources to get information about a specific domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, such a record is used to prove that you own a domain if you're trying to add it to an online search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Since just the domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the firm providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that ensures that an e-mail address will not be spoofed and that others will not receive spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes information about the mail server where your electronic messages come from and serves as proof that it's a reliable one. Since there are no standards concerning the content of this type of a record, you could add any other info as well.
