A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds information 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 like Google, for example, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you must 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 will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, like your business details, for example.
