A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. However, in this situation 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 employed if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, just like your business details, for example.
