A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you are the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. The very same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. Needless to say, in this 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 prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information also, just like your company details, for instance.
