A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. Needless to say, 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 additionally employed if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, such as your business details, as an example.
