A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your site to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers information about the web traffic to your web site. Creating this sort of a record can serve as proof that you are the domain owner and they will supply the content you should 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 web server - this is the so-called SPF security, which helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send junk e-mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could include any other information which you want to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
