A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that contains info in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a given domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your web sites as well. Needless to say, in this situation the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally employed if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can shield them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a given electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information also, such as your company details, for example.
