A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with an Internet domain as a DNS record for one purpose or other. 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 information about the web traffic to your Internet site. Setting up this type of a record can serve as verification that you're the Internet domain owner and they'll provide the content you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to validate that an email message is sent by the domain name owner and from a reliable web server - this is the so-called SPF security, which prevents any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send out junk 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.
