A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a particular domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you must use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. Needless to say, in this case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally employed if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, just like your company details, for example.
