TXT is a DNS record, which contains data in human-readable form for external sources to get info about a certain 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 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 business supplying the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that helps to ensure that an email address isn’t spoofed and that others will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains details about the mail server where your electronic messages arrive from and serves as verification that it's a reliable one. As there are no regulations concerning the content of this type of a record, you could add any other information as well.
