TXT is a DNS record, that contains info in human-readable form for external sources to obtain info about a certain domain or subdomain. In the most common case, this sort of record is used to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to an online search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a proof of ownership for the firm offering the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which makes sure that an e-mail address won't be spoofed and that individuals will not get junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features details about the mail server where your electronic messages come from and functions as validation that it is a reliable one. Because there are no standards regarding the content of this type of a record, you could also include any other info as well.
