A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which holds info in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and which you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web 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 if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, such as your business details, as an example.
