A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which contains info in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain address or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a particular domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. The very same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your websites as well. However, in this situation 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 used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can shield them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a particular digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, such as your business details, as an example.
