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 another. The most popular use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers details about the targeted traffic to your Internet site. Setting up this sort of a record can serve as proof that you are the domain owner and they will supply the content you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another application of a TXT record is to confirm that an e-mail message is sent by the domain address owner and from a reliable web server - this is the so-called SPF protection, that prevents any electronic address created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send junk e-mail making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You can include any other info that you would like to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
