A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a particular domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and which you must use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, in this case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains information showing that a certain digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information as well, such as your business details, as an example.
