A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of verifying you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and that you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in this case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also used if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains information 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 as well, such as your company details, as an example.
