A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a given domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, 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 employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information also, just like your business details, as an example.
