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 typical use of a TXT record is to add your web site to a search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides info about the traffic to your site. Creating such a record works as confirmation that you are the domain address owner and they'll provide the content you should include as the value when you create the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to confirm that an email message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a reliable hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send unsolicited mail making it look like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could add any other info that you'd like to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
