A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with a domain address as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most widespread use of a TXT record is to add your site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides details about the targeted traffic to your site. Creating this sort of a record may serve as confirmation that you're the domain address owner and they'll provide the content that you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to confirm that an e mail message is sent by the domain name owner and from a reliable server - this is the so-called SPF security, which helps prevent any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send unsolicited mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You can include any other info you want to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
