Considering that only the domain address owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the firm providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that makes sure that a particular email address shall not be spoofed and that others will not get junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your online messages arrive from and functions as confirmation that it is a reliable one. Because there are no restrictions concerning the content of this sort of a record, you could also include any other information as well.
