A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of verifying you are 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 that you must use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet sites as well. However, in this case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to shield them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains info showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, such as your business details, for example.
