A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with a domain address as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your website to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides details about the web traffic to your website. Creating this kind of a record works as proof that you're the domain address owner and they'll provide the content you should 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 server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which prevents any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send out unsolicited mail making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You may include any other information that you'd like to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
