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 other. The most typical use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides details about the traffic to your web site. Creating this sort of a record can serve as confirmation that you are the Internet domain owner and they'll supply the content that you ought to include as the value when you create the record. Another use of a TXT record is to validate that an e mail message is sent by the domain address owner and from a trusted server - this is the so-called SPF protection, that helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send out junk e-mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could include any other information that you would like to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
