A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which contains data in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and which you should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor 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 will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to protect them from being forged. In this case, 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, just like your business details, for instance.
