A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is 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 used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your web sites as well. However, 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 also used in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this case, the record contains info showing that a particular digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information also, like your business details, for instance.
