A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that contains data in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up 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're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Needless to say, in this 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 furthermore used if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains information showing that a certain digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, like your company details, as an example.
