A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines, 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 specific text which they provide and which you should use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, in such a case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally used in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information also, such as your business details, as an example.
