A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with a domain address as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides information about the traffic to your website. Creating such a record serves as confirmation that you are the domain name owner and they'll provide the content that you need to include as the value when you set up the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to confirm that an email message is sent by the domain 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 appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You may include any other information which you want to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
