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 frequent use of a TXT record is to add your website to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers information about the targeted traffic to your Internet site. Setting up this kind of a record can serve as verification that you're the domain owner and they'll provide the content that you ought to include as the value when you set up the record. Another application of a TXT record is to validate that an e-mail message is sent by the domain address owner and from a trusted server - this is the so-called SPF security, that helps prevent any electronic address created 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 may include any other info which you want to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
