TXT is a DNS record, that contains information in human-readable form for external sources to get info about a certain Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this kind of record is used to prove that you own a domain name in case you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Considering that just the Internet domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a verification of ownership for the firm offering the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which makes sure that an email address will not be spoofed and that others will not get unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes details about the mail server where your online messages originate from and serves as proof that it's a dependable one. Since there are no standards regarding the content of this type of a record, you can include any other info also.
