A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most widespread use of a TXT record is to add your site to a search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers details about the traffic to your website. Setting up this type of a record can serve as confirmation that you are the Internet domain owner and they'll provide the content that you ought to include as the value when you create the record. Another use of a TXT record is to verify that an email message is sent by the domain owner and from a reliable hosting server - this is the so-called SPF security, that prevents any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send spam making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could add any other information you want to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
