A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text which 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 Internet sites as well. Needless to say, in such a case 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 additionally used when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a given electronic 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 company details, for example.
