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