A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that contains info in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of verifying you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you should use as the record value. The very same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, in this case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains information showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, such as your company details, for example.
