A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, 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 many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a particular domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web sites as well. Needless to say, 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 in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can shield them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information as well, like your business details, as an example.
