A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains info in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, 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 additionally used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a given digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information also, such as your company details, for instance.
