TXT is a DNS record, which contains information in human-readable form for external sources to gain information regarding a specific domain name or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain name in case you're trying to add it to an online search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Since just the Internet domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the corporation supplying the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which makes sure that an e-mail address won't be spoofed and that people will not get spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes details about the mail server where your electronic messages originate from and serves as verification that it's a trusted one. Because there are no restrictions about the content of this kind of a record, you could add any other info also.
