A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you should use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet sites as well. However, in such a 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 also used if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, just like your business details, for example.
