A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites as well. However, in this case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also employed when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can shield them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information also, such as your business details, as an example.
