TXT is a DNS record, containing data in human-readable form for external sources to get info about a particular domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this type of record is used to prove that you own a domain name if you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. As only the Internet domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a proof of ownership for the company supplying the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which ensures that an e-mail address will not be spoofed and that people will not get spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your online messages come from and functions as validation that it's a dependable one. As there are no restrictions about the content of such a record, you could add any other information also.
