TXT is a DNS record, containing info in human-readable form for external sources to get information regarding a certain domain name or subdomain. In the most common scenario, such a record is used to prove that you own a domain name in case you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some website traffic analytics platform. As just the domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the company supplying the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that helps to ensure that a particular email address shall not be spoofed and that people will not get spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your online messages originate from and functions as verification that it is a trusted one. Since there are no restrictions about the content of this sort of a record, you can include any other info also.
