A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of verifying you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet sites as well. However, in this 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 also employed if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a given digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information also, like your business details, for example.
