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 another. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your site to a search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers information about the web traffic to your website. Setting up this sort of a record functions as verification that you're the Internet domain owner and they will supply the content that you need to include as the value when you set up the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to verify that an e mail message is sent by the domain address owner and from a trusted web server - this is the so-called SPF security, which helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send junk e-mail making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You can include any other information that you would like to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
