A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in such a case 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 additionally employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains information showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, just like your company details, as an example.
