A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your sites as well. Needless to say, 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 furthermore employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, just like your company details, for instance.
