A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and that you must use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. Needless to say, 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 furthermore employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, just like your company details, as an example.
