A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains data in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of verifying you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you must use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of 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 enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information as well, like your company details, for example.
