A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web 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 used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains information showing that a given electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, like your business details, for instance.
