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