A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is associated with an Internet domain as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most common use of a TXT record is to add your website to an online search engine or to an analytics platform, which offers details about the targeted traffic to your Internet site. Setting up this type of a record can serve as confirmation that you're the domain address owner and they will supply the content you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another use of a TXT record is to validate that an e-mail message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a trusted server - this is the so-called SPF security, which helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send unsolicited mail 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 name in a TXT record as well.

Via a really user-friendly point-and-click interface, you'll only have to select one of your domain names or subdomains from a drop-down navigation, select TXT for the type from a second menu, and then enter the actual content in a box.
