A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that contains info in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you must use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your 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 so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information as well, just like your business details, for example.
