A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a particular domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you need to use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet sites as well. However, in this case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also used when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains information showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, like your company details, for instance.
