A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds information in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a given domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you must use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your sites as well. However, in this situation the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore used if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a given 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 company details, for example.
