TXT is a DNS record, which contains information in human-readable form for external sources to gain info about a certain domain or subdomain. In the most common case, such a record is used to prove that you own a domain if you are trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the Internet domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a verification of ownership for the firm providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that helps to ensure that an e-mail address won't be spoofed and that individuals will not receive spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features information about the mail server where your online messages come from and serves as verification that it is a reliable one. Since there are no regulations concerning the content of such a record, you could also include any other information also.
