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 other. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your site to a search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers information about the targeted traffic to your website. Creating such a record serves as confirmation that you are the domain name owner and they'll supply the content that you need to include as the value when you create the record. Another application of a TXT record is to confirm that an email message is sent by the domain owner and from a reliable hosting server - this is the so-called SPF security, which prevents any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send junk mail making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could include any other information that you'd like to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
