A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you should use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your websites as well. However, in this situation the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, like your business details, for instance.
