A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which holds information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet sites as well. However, in this 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 additionally employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information as well, like your business details, as an example.
