TXT is a DNS record, that contains info in human-readable form for external sources to get information regarding a particular domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, such a record is used to prove that you own a domain name if you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the domain address owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a verification of ownership for the corporation offering the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that ensures that a particular email address will not be spoofed and that people will not get junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains info about the mail server where your electronic messages originate from and serves as confirmation that it's a reliable one. As there are no standards concerning the content of this type of a record, you can include any other info as well.
