A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which holds data in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain name or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. Needless to say, 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 also employed if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains info showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, just like your business details, for example.
