A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which holds data in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of verifying you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your 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 furthermore employed if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, just like your business details, for example.
