A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most frequent use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides details about the targeted traffic to your site. Setting up such a record works as proof that you are the domain owner and they will supply the content you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another use of a TXT record is to validate that an e-mail message is sent by the domain owner and from a trusted hosting server - this is the so-called SPF security, that prevents any electronic address created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send spam making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You can include any other info that you'd like to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
