A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which holds information in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a particular domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and which you must use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your websites as well. Needless to say, 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 additionally employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, like your company details, for example.
