A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and which you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. However, in such a 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 additionally used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to prevent them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a certain digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information as well, such as your business details, as an example.
