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