A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds info in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and that you should use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web sites as well. Needless to say, in this situation the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally used in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a certain electronic 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 example.
