A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that contains data in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and which you should use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your web sites as well. Of course, 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 also used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a given digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any type of other information also, like your business details, as an example.
