A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that contains data in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a particular domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in such a 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 used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to prevent them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a given digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, like your company details, for example.
