TXT is a DNS record, containing info in human-readable form for external sources to get information regarding a specific domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain name in case you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Considering that just the Internet domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the company offering the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that makes sure that a particular email address isn’t spoofed and that people will not receive junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains info about the mail server where your digital messages arrive from and functions as validation that it's a trusted one. As there are no regulations about the content of this type of a record, you can add any other information as well.
