TXT is a DNS record, that contains information in human-readable form for external sources to gain info about a specific domain or subdomain. In the most common case, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain if you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Considering that only the domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a verification of ownership for the business supplying the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which makes sure that a particular email address will not be spoofed and that people will not receive junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features info about the mail server where your digital messages come from and functions as verification that it is a reliable one. Because there are no standards regarding the content of this sort of a record, you could add any other info as well.
