A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains info in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a given domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your Internet sites as well. However, 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 if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to prevent them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, such as your company details, for instance.
