A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which holds information in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in this situation the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to shield them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any other information also, such as your business details, as an example.
