A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most popular use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers details about the web traffic to your site. Setting up this sort of a record functions as verification that you are the domain address owner and they'll supply the content that you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another use of a TXT record is to confirm that an e mail message is sent by the domain address owner and from a reliable server - this is the so-called SPF protection, that prevents any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send junk e-mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could add any other info which you want to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
