A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which contains information in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites 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 also employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains info showing that a given digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any other information as well, such as your business details, for example.
