A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with a domain address as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most widespread use of a TXT record is to add your website to a search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers info about the targeted traffic to your Internet site. Creating such a record works as verification that you're the domain name owner and they will supply the content you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to confirm that an e mail message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a trusted server - this is the so-called SPF security, that prevents any electronic address created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send out junk mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You can include any other information you want to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
