A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most frequent use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides information about the targeted traffic to your site. Creating this kind of a record may serve as proof that you are the domain address owner and they'll provide the content that you ought to include as the value when you create the record. Another use of a TXT record is to verify 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 created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send unsolicited mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could add any other information you want to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
