A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain address as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most typical use of a TXT record is to add your website to a search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers details about the targeted traffic to your Internet site. Creating this sort of a record serves as verification that you're the domain address owner and they'll provide the content you should include as the value when you create the record. Another use of a TXT record is to verify that an e-mail message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a trusted hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send out unsolicited mail making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You may include any other info you want to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
