A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites as well. However, in such a case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a given digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, just like your company details, for instance.
