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 name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, 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 additionally 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 info showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, just like your company details, for instance.
