A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a particular domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. The very same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your sites 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 in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can shield them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, just like your business details, for example.
