A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your site to a search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides info about the web traffic to your site. Setting up this type of a record works as confirmation that you are the domain address owner and they will provide the content that you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to validate that an e-mail message is sent by the domain name owner and from a trusted hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which helps prevent any electronic address created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send spam making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You may include any other information you want to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
