A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of verifying you're the owner of a given domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and that you 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 websites as well. However, in this 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 additionally used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains information showing that a certain digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any type of other information also, such as your company details, for example.
