A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most widespread use of a TXT record is to add your site to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides details about the targeted traffic to your website. Creating this sort of a record can serve as proof that you're the domain address owner and they'll supply the content you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to verify that an e mail message is sent by the domain name owner and from a trusted hosting server - this is the so-called SPF security, that prevents any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send out unsolicited mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could add any other info that you'd like to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
