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 popular use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides information about the targeted traffic to your web site. Setting up this type of a record may serve as confirmation that you're the domain name owner and they'll provide the content that you ought to include as the value when you set up the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to confirm that an e mail message is sent by the domain 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 junk e-mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You can include any other information you want to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
