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