A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that contains data in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Needless to say, in this case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally used if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a particular digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any other information as well, just like your business details, for instance.
