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 frequent use of a TXT record is to add your website to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides information about the targeted traffic to your web site. Creating this type of a record can serve as confirmation that you are the domain name owner and they will supply the content you need to include as the value when you set up 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 trusted web server - this is the so-called SPF security, that helps prevent any electronic address created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send unsolicited mail making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could add any other information which you want to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
