A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a particular domain 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. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites as well. However, 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 also used when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information also, such as your company details, as an example.
