A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your websites as well. However, in such a case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also employed if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains information showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, like your company details, for instance.
