A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which holds data in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of verifying you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you should use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in such a 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 additionally used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a certain digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, like your company details, as an example.
