A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that contains info in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of verifying you're the owner of a given domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and which you should use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. Of course, in this case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, just like your business details, for example.
