A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of verifying that you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you should use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your sites as well. However, in this situation 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 employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to shield them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information also, like your business details, as an example.
