A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which holds info in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain address or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of confirming that 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 which you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in such a 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 also employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains information showing that a particular digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, just like your company details, as an example.
