A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that holds data in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and which you should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your Internet sites as well. However, in this 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 employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a particular digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, like your company details, as an example.
