A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which holds info in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, in this situation 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 employed in case you enable 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 certain electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information also, such as your business details, for instance.
