A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides details about the traffic to your site. Creating this sort of a record can serve as verification that you are the domain address owner and they will supply the content that you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to validate that an e-mail message is sent by the domain address owner and from a trusted server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which prevents any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send junk e-mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You can include any other info which you want to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
