TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to gain info about a certain domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, such a record is used to prove that you own a domain if you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. As only the domain address owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the business supplying the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which ensures that a particular email address isn’t spoofed and that people will not receive spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your digital messages come from and functions as confirmation that it's a dependable one. Since there are no regulations concerning the content of such a record, you can include any other info as well.
