TXT is a DNS record, that contains data in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information about a particular domain name 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 site traffic analytics platform. Since just the Internet domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the business supplying the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which ensures that an email address won't be spoofed and that others will not get unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes information about the mail server where your online messages originate from and serves as confirmation that it is a reliable one. Because there are no rules about the content of this type of a record, you could also include any other information also.
