A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you should use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web sites as well. However, in this 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 when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a certain digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, just like your business details, as an example.
