A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most frequent use of a TXT record is to add your web site to a search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides info about the targeted traffic to your Internet site. Creating this kind of a record serves as proof that you are the Internet domain owner and they will supply the content that you need to include as the value when you set up the record. Another application of a TXT record is to verify that an e-mail message is sent by the domain address owner and from a reliable server - this is the so-called SPF security, which prevents any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send out spam making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You can include any other info that you'd like to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
