A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with a domain address as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most widespread use of a TXT record is to add your site to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides information about the traffic to your Internet site. Creating this type of a record works as proof that you are the domain name owner and they'll supply the content that you ought to include as the value when you create the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to validate that an email message is sent by the domain owner and from a trusted web server - this is the so-called SPF security, that prevents any electronic address set up under your domain name 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 you want to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
