A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds information in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain name or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and which you must use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, in such a case 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 used if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, just like your business details, for example.
