A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your websites as well. Needless to say, in such a 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 when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a certain digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, such as your business details, for example.
