A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet 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 furthermore employed if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a certain digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, such as your company details, for example.
