TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to gain info about a particular Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this type of record is used to prove that you own a domain name if you are trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Considering that just the domain name owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the corporation supplying the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that makes sure that a particular email address will not be spoofed and that people will not get unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your digital messages originate from and serves as proof that it is a dependable one. Since there are no regulations about the content of such a record, you could also include any other information as well.
