A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which holds info in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you should use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet sites as well. However, in such a 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 furthermore employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to prevent them from being forged. In this case, the record contains info showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, just like your company details, for instance.
