A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain address or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and that you need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. However, in this situation the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore used in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a given electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any type of other information also, like your business details, for instance.
