A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with an Internet domain as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most common 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 web traffic to your Internet site. Setting up this kind of a record can serve as verification that you're the domain address owner and they'll supply the content that you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to verify that an e mail message is sent by the domain address owner and from a trusted server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which helps prevent any electronic address created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send out junk mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could add any other info which you want to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
