TXT is a DNS record, that contains information in human-readable form for external sources to gain info about a specific Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this kind of record is used to prove that you own a domain name if you are trying to add it to an Internet 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 works as a verification of ownership for the business supplying the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which ensures that an e-mail address isn’t spoofed and that people will not receive junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your digital messages arrive from and functions as proof that it's a trusted one. Because there are no restrictions about the content of such a record, you could add any other info as well.

Via a really user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll simply have to choose one of your domain names or subdomains from a drop-down options menu, select TXT for the type from a second menu, then enter the actual content in a box.
