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 other. The most widespread use of a TXT record is to add your site to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides information about the web traffic to your site. Setting up this kind of a record works as proof that you are the domain owner and they will provide the content you should include as the value when you create the record. Another application of a TXT record is to validate that an e mail message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a trusted hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, that prevents any electronic address created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send junk mail making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could include any other information which you want to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
