A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that contains info in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of verifying you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your websites as well. Needless to say, in this situation the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also employed if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to shield them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a particular digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information also, such as your business details, as an example.
