A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is in fact 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 monitor the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Needless to say, in such a 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 furthermore used in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, like your business details, for example.
