A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in this situation 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 when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can shield 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 can use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, like your company details, as an example.
