A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a particular domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and which you need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in this situation 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 also used when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, just like your company details, for instance.
