A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which contains data in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is in fact 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 being employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in this situation 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 furthermore used in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a certain digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, just like your company details, as an example.
