A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you must use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in this case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a certain digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, such as your company details, as an example.
