A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains data in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of verifying that you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and which you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. Needless to say, in this situation 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 in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, such as your business details, for example.
