A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains data in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a given domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, 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 employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains info showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, just like your business details, for example.
