A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most popular use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers details about the traffic to your site. Setting up such a record functions as confirmation that you are the Internet domain owner and they will supply the content that you ought to include as the value when you set up the record. Another application of a TXT record is to verify that an email message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a reliable hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, that helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send out junk e-mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You can include any other information that you would like to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
