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 common use of a TXT record is to add your website to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides information about the traffic to your site. Creating such a record may serve as verification that you are the domain name owner and they will provide the content you should include as the value when you create the record. Another use of a TXT record is to verify that an e-mail message is sent by the domain owner and from a trusted server - this is the so-called SPF security, which prevents any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send junk mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could include any other info you want to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
