A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that holds information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and which 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 web sites as well. Needless to say, in such a 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 in order to shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains info showing that a certain digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information also, just like your business details, for instance.
