A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that contains info in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you must use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, 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 enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info 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 as well, like your company details, for example.
