A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of verifying you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and which you should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, 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 also used in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a given digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, just like your business details, as an example.
