A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of verifying that you are the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. Needless to say, in such a case 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 used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, just like your business details, for instance.
