A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with an Internet domain as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most typical use of a TXT record is to add your site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides details about the traffic to your website. Setting up this type of a record functions as confirmation that you're the domain address owner and they'll provide the content that you should include as the value when you create the record. Another application of a TXT record is to confirm that an e mail message is sent by the domain address owner and from a reliable server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which helps prevent any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send junk mail making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could add any other info which you want to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
