A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of verifying you are the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web sites as well. Needless to say, in this 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 furthermore used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to shield them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains information showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, just like your company details, for example.
