The most popular use of a TXT record is to add your web site to a search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides info about the traffic to your web site. Creating such a record functions as verification that you're the domain address owner and they'll provide the content that you ought to include as the value when you create the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to verify that an e-mail message is sent by the domain name owner and from a trusted hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, that helps prevent any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send out junk e-mail making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You can include any other info which you want to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
