A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with a domain address as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most widespread use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides information about the web traffic to your Internet site. Setting up this type of a record functions as proof that you are the Internet domain owner and they will provide the content you should include as the value when you create the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to confirm that an email message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a trusted server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which prevents any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send unsolicited mail making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You may include any other info that you'd like to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
