A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds information in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of verifying that you are the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you should use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites as well. Needless to say, in this situation the content of the record is going to 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 email addresses so that you can protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains info showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, such as your business details, for example.
