A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with a domain address as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your website to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers information about the web traffic to your web site. Creating this sort of a record functions as proof that you're the domain name owner and they'll provide the content that you need to include as the value when you set up the record. Another use of a TXT record is to verify that an e mail message is sent by the domain name owner and from a trusted web 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 out junk mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could include any other info that you would like to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
