A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most frequent use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides information about the targeted traffic to your website. Creating such a record works as confirmation that you are the domain owner and they'll supply the content that you need to include as the value when you set up the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to verify that an email message is sent by the domain address owner and from a trusted server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which helps prevent any electronic address created under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send out unsolicited mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could include any other info that you'd like to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
