A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most widespread use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers info about the web traffic to your website. Setting up this type of a record works as confirmation that you're the Internet domain owner and they will supply the content you should include as the value when you create the record. Another use of a TXT record is to confirm that an e mail message is sent by the domain address owner and from a trusted hosting server - this is the so-called SPF security, which prevents any electronic address created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send out junk mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could include any other information that you'd like to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
