A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with an Internet domain as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most frequent use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers information about the targeted traffic to your Internet site. Setting up this kind of a record can serve as proof that you are the domain address owner and they'll supply the content you need to include as the value when you set up the record. Another use of a TXT record is to verify that an e-mail message is sent by the domain name owner and from a reliable server - this is the so-called SPF security, which helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send out unsolicited mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You may include any other info you want to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
