A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most typical use of a TXT record is to add your web site to a search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides information about the targeted traffic to your site. Creating this kind of a record can serve as proof that you're the domain address owner and they'll supply the content that you should 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 reliable server - this is the so-called SPF security, that helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send out spam making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You can include any other information which you want to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
