A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a given domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet 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 also employed when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains info showing that a particular digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, just like your business details, for instance.
