A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a given domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and that you must use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites as well. However, 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 additionally used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, such as your business details, as an example.
