A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which holds info in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you must use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your web sites as well. However, 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 employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains info showing that a given electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, just like your business details, for instance.
