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 popular use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers info about the web traffic to your Internet site. Setting up this type of a record works as verification that you are 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 hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which 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 could include any other information which you want to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
