A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that contains data in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a given 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 being employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your Internet sites as well. However, 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 used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a given electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, like your business details, as an example.
