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 frequent use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides details about the traffic to your Internet site. Setting up this kind of a record works as confirmation that you are the domain owner and they'll supply the content that you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another application of a TXT record is to validate that an e mail message is sent by the domain name owner and from a reliable server - this is the so-called SPF protection, that helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send out spam making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You can include any other info that you'd like to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
