A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with an Internet domain as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most widespread use of a TXT record is to add your website to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers details about the targeted traffic to your website. Setting up this kind of a record may serve as verification that you are the Internet domain owner and they will provide the content that you ought to include as the value when you set up the record. Another application of a TXT record is to confirm that an e mail message is sent by the domain name owner and from a reliable web server - this is the so-called SPF security, that helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send junk mail making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You can include any other information you want to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
