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 another. The most widespread use of a TXT record is to add your site to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers info about the web traffic to your website. Setting up this kind of a record may serve as confirmation that you're the domain owner and they'll supply the content that you should 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 Internet domain owner and from a reliable hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, that helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send out junk mail making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could include any other info that you would like to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
