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 another. The most widespread use of a TXT record is to add your website to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides info about the web traffic to your website. Setting up such a record works as confirmation that you are the Internet domain owner and they'll provide the content you should include as the value when you create the record. Another use of a TXT record is to validate that an email message is sent by the domain address owner and from a trusted server - this is the so-called SPF protection, 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 in a TXT record as well.
