A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that holds info in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you should use as the record value. The very same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. Of course, in this case the content of the record will 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 email addresses in order to protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, such as your company details, as an example.
