A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most popular use of a TXT record is to add your site to a search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides information about the web traffic to your web site. Setting up such a record functions as proof that you're the domain address owner and they'll provide the content you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another application of a TXT record is to confirm that an e-mail message is sent by the domain name owner and from a reliable web server - this is the so-called SPF security, that helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send out junk 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 in a TXT record as well.
