A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Needless to say, 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 also employed when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to shield them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a given digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any other information as well, just like your company details, for instance.
