A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which contains info in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of verifying that you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, in this situation 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 if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, like your business details, as an example.
