A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most popular use of a TXT record is to add your web site to a search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers information about the targeted traffic to your website. Creating this sort of a record may serve as verification that you are the domain name owner and they'll supply the content that you ought to include as the value when you create the record. Another use of a TXT record is to verify that an e mail message is sent by the domain address owner and from a reliable web server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which prevents any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send out junk e-mail making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could add any other information that you'd like to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
