A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides information about the targeted traffic to your Internet site. Setting up this sort of a record works as confirmation that you are the Internet domain owner and they will provide the content you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another application of a TXT record is to verify that an e-mail message is sent by the domain name owner and from a reliable web server - this is the so-called SPF security, which prevents any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send out junk e-mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You may include any other info you want to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
