A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that contains info in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a given domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your web sites as well. However, 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 also employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a given digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, such as your business details, for example.
