A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain address or a subdomain for many different 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 in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you should use as the record value. The very same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your websites as well. However, in such a 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 also employed if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any other information as well, like your company details, as an example.
