A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds information in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain name or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you must use as the record value. The exact same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites 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 employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, such as your business details, for example.
