A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that contains info in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique 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. Of course, in this case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore used when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains info showing that a particular digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information also, like your company details, as an example.
