A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain address as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your website to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides information about the targeted traffic to your website. Setting up this sort of a record functions as confirmation that you are the domain owner and they'll supply the content you need to include as the value when you set up the record. Another use of a TXT record is to confirm that an e mail message is sent by the domain owner and from a reliable hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which prevents any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send out junk e-mail making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could include any other info which you want to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
