A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains information in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, in this 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 additionally used when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to shield them from being forged. In such a case, 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 other information also, such as your company details, for instance.
