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 address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and which you need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of 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'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to shield them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a given electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, like your business details, as an example.
