A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most typical use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers info about the traffic to your website. Creating this sort of a record serves as confirmation that you're the domain owner and they will provide the content that you need to include as the value when you set up the record. Another application of a TXT record is to validate that an e-mail message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a reliable web server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which prevents any electronic address created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send out unsolicited mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You may include any other information that you'd like to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
