A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains information in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain address 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 and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, in this situation the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a given electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information as well, such as your company details, as an example.
