A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which holds data in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of verifying that you are the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you should use as the record value. The very same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web sites as well. Of course, in this 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 if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any other information as well, such as your business details, for example.
