A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with an Internet domain as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your website to a search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides details about the web traffic to your website. Creating this sort of a record works as confirmation that you're 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 purpose of a TXT record is to validate that an e mail message is sent by the domain name owner and from a trusted web server - this is the so-called SPF security, which helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send out spam making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could include any other information that you would like to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
