A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that contains data in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a particular domain name 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 employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your sites as well. Needless to say, in this situation 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 employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information also, such as your company details, as an example.
