A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. Needless to say, in this 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 used in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a particular digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information also, just like your business details, as an example.
