A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique 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 this situation the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed if 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 certain digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information also, just like your business details, for example.
