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 site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers details about the targeted traffic to your website. Creating this kind of a record serves as proof that you are the domain name owner and they will provide the content you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another application of a TXT record is to confirm that an email message is sent by the domain address owner and from a reliable web server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which prevents any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send junk mail making it look like it was mailed 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.
