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 employed to prove that you own a domain in case you are trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Since just the domain address owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the firm offering the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that ensures that a particular email address won't be spoofed and that individuals will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your online messages originate from and serves as verification that it is a reliable one. As there are no standards about the content of this kind of a record, you could also include any other information as well.
