A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which contains info in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, 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 furthermore used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a certain digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, like your business details, for instance.
