Another application of a TXT record is to confirm that an e mail message is sent by the domain name owner and from a reliable hosting server - this is the so-called SPF protection, that prevents any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized individuals to send unsolicited mail making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You may include any other info that you'd like to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
