A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web sites as well. Needless to say, in this situation 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 additionally used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, like your business details, for instance.
