A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that is 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 an online search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers info about the targeted traffic to your website. Setting up this kind of a record may serve as proof that you are the domain address owner and they will provide the content you need to include as the value when you set up the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to validate that an e mail message is sent by the domain address owner and from a reliable server - this is the so-called SPF security, that helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send spam 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 in a TXT record as well.

Via a very user-friendly point-and-click interface, you will only have to choose one of your domain names or subdomains from a drop-down navigation, pick out TXT for the type from a second menu, and then input the actual content inside a box.
