A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that holds info in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web 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 furthermore used if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a given electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, like your business details, as an example.
