TXT is a DNS record, containing data in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information about a specific domain name or subdomain. In the most common case, 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 website traffic analytics platform. As just the Internet domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the corporation offering the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that ensures that an e-mail address isn’t spoofed and that people will not receive spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your electronic messages arrive from and functions as verification that it's a reliable one. Since there are no restrictions concerning the content of such a record, you can add any other information also.
