A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check 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'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, just like your business details, for instance.
