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 frequent use of a TXT record is to add your website to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers details about the web traffic to your site. Creating this type of a record may serve as confirmation that you're the domain address owner and they will supply the content that you should 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 owner and from a reliable hosting 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 out junk e-mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You may include any other info which you want to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
