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 online search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers details about the traffic to your website. Setting up such a record can serve as proof that you're the domain owner and they will supply the content you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to confirm that an email message is sent by the domain owner and from a reliable server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which helps prevent any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send out unsolicited mail making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could include any other information that you'd like to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
