TXT is a DNS record, which contains data in human-readable form for external sources to gain information about a particular domain or subdomain. In the most common case, such a record is employed to prove that you own a domain name in case you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Since just the domain name owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a proof of ownership for the company supplying the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that ensures that an email address shall not be spoofed and that others will not get unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features info about the mail server where your online messages originate from and serves as confirmation that it's a trusted one. Since there are no regulations regarding the content of this kind of a record, you could also include any other information as well.
