A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is 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, that provides information about the web traffic to your website. Setting up this sort of a record serves as verification that you're the domain address owner and they'll provide the content that you ought to include as the value when you create the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to validate that an e-mail message is sent by the domain owner and from a reliable server - this is the so-called SPF protection, that prevents any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send out spam making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You may include any other information that you'd like to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
