A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that 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 details about the traffic to your Internet site. Creating such a record works as verification that you are the domain name owner and they will provide the content that you ought to include as the value when you create the record. Another application of a TXT record is to confirm that an e-mail message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a reliable web server - this is the so-called SPF protection, that prevents any electronic address created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send unsolicited mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could include any other information that you would like to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
