A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with an Internet domain as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most popular use of a TXT record is to add your website to a search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers information about the web traffic to your website. Creating this type of a record works as confirmation that you're the domain address owner and they will supply the content you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another application of a TXT record is to validate that an email message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a reliable hosting server - this is the so-called SPF security, that prevents any electronic address set up 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 can include any other information which you want to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
