A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds info in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web sites as well. However, in this situation the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can shield them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains information showing that a given electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, such as your company details, for example.
