A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which holds information in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and which you should use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your Internet sites 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 activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to shield them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a given electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, such as your business details, for example.
