A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains information in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of verifying you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, in this 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 additionally employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can shield them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, just like your business details, for example.
