A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that contains data in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your sites as well. Needless to say, in such a 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 also used if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information also, such as your business details, for example.
