A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which contains data in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain name or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and that you must use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. Of course, 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 additionally employed if 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 particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, like your company details, as an example.
