A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most typical use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides info about the web traffic to your website. Setting up this kind of a record works as confirmation that you are the domain address owner and they'll supply the content that you ought 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 address owner and from a reliable hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, that prevents any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send out unsolicited mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You can include any other info that you would like to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
