TXT is a DNS record, that contains information in human-readable form for external sources to gain info about a specific domain name or subdomain. In the most common situation, such a record is employed to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that only the domain name owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a verification of ownership for the business providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that ensures that an email address will not be spoofed and that people will not get junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes information about the mail server where your digital messages originate from and serves as confirmation that it's a dependable one. As there are no regulations regarding the content of this kind of a record, you can add any other info as well.
