A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with an Internet domain as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most typical use of a TXT record is to add your website to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides information about the traffic to your website. Setting up this sort of a record functions as verification that you are the Internet domain owner and they will supply the content that you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another application of a TXT record is to validate that an email message is sent by the domain name owner and from a trusted hosting server - this is the so-called SPF security, that helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send spam making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could add any other info you want to be associated with your Internet domain in a TXT record as well.
