A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that holds information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of verifying you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and that you must use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, in this case 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 also used in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information as well, such as your business details, for instance.
