A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is associated with a domain name as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your web site to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers info about the targeted traffic to your site. Setting up this kind of a record works as proof that you're the Internet 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 validate that an email message is sent by the Internet domain 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 out spam making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could include any other information you want to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
