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 popular use of a TXT record is to add your website to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides details about the traffic to your website. Setting up this kind of a record serves as confirmation that you're the domain owner and they'll provide the content that you should 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 owner and from a reliable web server - this is the so-called SPF security, which helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send junk e-mail making it look like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could add any other info which you want to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
