A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most frequent use of a TXT record is to add your website to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides info about the targeted traffic to your website. Creating this kind of a record may serve as verification that you're the domain address owner and they will supply the content you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another use of a TXT record is to validate that an e-mail message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a trusted server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send out junk mail making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could include any other information that you would like to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
