A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you should use as the record value. The very same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web sites as well. Of course, in such a case 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 enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains info showing that a certain digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, just like your company details, as an example.
