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 typical use of a TXT record is to add your website to a search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides details about the targeted traffic to your web site. Creating this type of a record serves as verification that you're the domain name owner and they'll supply the content that you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another application of a TXT record is to validate that an email message is sent by the domain owner and from a trusted web server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send out junk e-mail making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could add any other information that you would like to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
