Creating this type of a record works as proof that you are the domain address owner and they will supply the content that you ought to include as the value when you set up the record. Another application of a TXT record is to confirm that an e mail message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a reliable web server - this is the so-called SPF protection, that helps prevent any electronic address set up under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send out unsolicited mail making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could add any other information which you want to be associated with your domain address in a TXT record as well.
