TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to gain info about a certain domain or subdomain. In the most common case, this type of record is employed to prove that you own a domain if you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. As just the domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the company providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that helps to ensure that an e-mail address won't be spoofed and that people will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your electronic messages arrive from and serves as proof that it is a dependable one. Because there are no standards about the content of this type of a record, you can include any other info also.
