A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that holds information in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. Needless to say, in such a case 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 used in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains information showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, like your company details, for instance.
