A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which holds information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of making sure that you're the owner of a given domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you will 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 sites as well. However, in this situation the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to prevent them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a particular digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, just like your business details, for example.
