TXT is a DNS record, that contains information in human-readable form for external sources to gain information regarding a particular domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this type of record is employed to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to an online search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. As only the domain name owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record works as a verification of ownership for the company providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that makes sure that an e-mail address won't be spoofed and that others will not get junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes information about the mail server where your online messages originate from and serves as verification that it is a trusted one. Since there are no restrictions about the content of such a record, you could add any other info also.
