A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you must use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your sites as well. However, in such a case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a given electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information also, such as your business details, for instance.
