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 other. The most popular use of a TXT record is to add your site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers information about the traffic to your website. Creating this type of a record works as confirmation that you are the domain owner and they will provide the content that you ought to include as the value when you set up the record. Another application of a TXT record is to confirm that an e mail message is sent by the domain name owner and from a reliable server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which helps prevent any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send unsolicited mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could include any other information which you want to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
