A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that contains info in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and which you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. However, in this situation 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 used when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains information showing that a given digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information also, like your company details, for instance.
