TXT is a DNS record, that contains info in human-readable form for external sources to gain info about a specific domain name or subdomain. In the most common case, this sort of record is used to prove that you own a domain in case you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. As just the domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the business providing the service. Another popular use for this sort of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that ensures that an email address will not be spoofed and that individuals will not get unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your online messages originate from and functions as verification that it is a reliable one. As there are no regulations regarding the content of this sort of a record, you could add any other info as well.
