A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which contains information in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you must use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your sites as well. Needless to say, 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 used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, just like your business details, as an example.
