TXT is a DNS record, that contains data in human-readable form for external sources to obtain info about a certain domain name or subdomain. In the most common case, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain name if you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Since only the domain name owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the business providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that makes sure that an e-mail address will not be spoofed and that others will not get junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your electronic messages come from and serves as confirmation that it is a reliable one. As there are no rules regarding the content of this sort of a record, you could add any other information as well.
