A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you must use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web sites as well. Of course, in such a case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also used when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information also, such as your business details, for example.
