A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that holds info in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a certain domain 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 very same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, in this 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 this case, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, like your business details, for instance.
