A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that 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. Needless to say, 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 additionally used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a certain digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, just like your company details, for example.
