A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most typical use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides details about the traffic to your web site. Setting up this type of a record serves as verification that you are the Internet domain owner and they will supply the content you need to 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 domain address owner and from a trusted hosting server - this is the so-called SPF security, that helps prevent any electronic address created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send out junk e-mail making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could add any other info you want to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
