A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains info in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a given domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your web sites as well. However, in this case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can shield them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information 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 as well, like your business details, for example.
