TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to gain information about a specific Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, such a record is employed to prove that you own a domain name if you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the domain address owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the business supplying the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which ensures that a particular email address won't be spoofed and that people will not get junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes information about the mail server where your online messages come from and functions as validation that it is a reliable one. As there are no regulations concerning the content of this kind of a record, you could add any other info also.
