A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of verifying you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, in this situation the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information also, such as your company details, for example.
