A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains info in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of making sure that you are the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, in this situation 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 employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a particular digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any other information also, like your business details, as an example.
