A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that holds information in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a certain domain name 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. The very same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. Of course, in such a case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to shield them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains info showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any type of other information also, such as your business details, for instance.
