TXT is a DNS record, which contains info in human-readable form for external sources to gain info about a certain Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, such a record is employed to prove that you own a domain name if you're trying to add it to an online search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the Internet domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions 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, that helps to ensure that a particular email address will not be spoofed and that people will not get spam 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 is a trusted one. Since there are no standards concerning the content of such a record, you can include any other info as well.
