A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which contains information in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your websites as well. However, in this situation 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 if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains info showing that a given electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, just like your company details, as an example.
