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 frequent use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides details about the targeted traffic to your website. Creating this type of a record functions as confirmation that you're the domain address owner and they will provide the content that you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to confirm that an e-mail message is sent by the domain name owner and from a trusted hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which helps prevent any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send junk mail making it appear like it was sent 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.
