A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds info in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The very same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet 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 will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains information showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any other information as well, just like your business details, for example.
