A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, 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 various purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a given domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, 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 also used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable 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.
