A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your website to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides information about the targeted traffic to your site. Setting up this type of a record may serve as confirmation that you're the domain name owner and they'll supply the content that you ought to include as the value when you set up the record. Another application of a TXT record is to validate that an email message is sent by the domain address owner and from a reliable web server - this is the so-called SPF security, which prevents any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send out spam making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You can include any other info you want to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
