A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most widespread use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides information about the targeted traffic to your Internet site. Creating such a record functions as proof that you're the domain owner and they'll supply the content that you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another use of a TXT record is to validate that an e mail message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a reliable hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which prevents any electronic address created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send junk e-mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could include any other information you want to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
