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 typical use of a TXT record is to add your website to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides info about the web traffic to your web site. Setting up this sort of a record works as confirmation that you are the domain name owner and they'll supply the content that you should 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 web server - this is the so-called SPF security, that helps prevent any electronic address created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send unsolicited mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You can include any other information which you want to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
