A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, in such a case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to shield them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a given digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any other information also, like your company details, as an example.
