A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and which you should use as the record value. The exact 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 will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a certain digital message is sent from a dependable 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.
