A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and that you will 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. Needless to say, in such a case 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 furthermore used if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can prevent them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information as well, just like your company details, for example.
