A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which holds information in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain address or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in such a case 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 employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains information showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, just like your company details, for example.
