TXT is a DNS record, that contains data in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information about a specific Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, such a record is used to prove that you own a domain if you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the Internet domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the company offering the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which makes sure that an email address shall not be spoofed and that others will not get junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features details about the mail server where your electronic messages arrive from and serves as validation that it's a trusted one. Because there are no rules concerning the content of this type of a record, you could also include any other info as well.
