A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which holds info in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. Needless to say, 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 used in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to shield them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains information showing that a particular digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any type of other information also, just like your business details, as an example.
