A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most widespread use of a TXT record is to add your website to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides information about the web traffic to your Internet site. Creating such a record may serve as verification that you're the domain address owner and they'll provide the content that you should include as the value when you create the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to confirm that an email message is sent by the domain name owner and from a trusted web server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which prevents any electronic address created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send junk mail making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You may include any other info you want to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
