A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your websites 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 additionally used 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 information showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any other information also, like your business details, as an example.
