A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most popular use of a TXT record is to add your website to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides information about the traffic to your Internet site. Setting up this kind of a record can serve as verification that you are the domain owner and they will provide the content that you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another application of a TXT record is to confirm that an email message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a reliable web server - this is the so-called SPF security, which helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send unsolicited mail making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You may include any other info you want to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
