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 another. The most typical use of a TXT record is to add your site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers information about the traffic to your website. Setting up this type of a record may serve as proof that you're the domain address owner and they'll provide the content that you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another use of a TXT record is to confirm that an e-mail message is sent by the domain owner and from a trusted hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, that helps prevent any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send out junk e-mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You can include any other info which you want to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
