A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most typical use of a TXT record is to add your site to a search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers information about the traffic to your Internet site. Creating this kind of a record can serve as verification that you are the domain name owner and they'll provide the content that you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another use of a TXT record is to confirm that an email message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a trusted server - this is the so-called SPF protection, that prevents any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send out unsolicited mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You may include any other info that you'd like to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
