A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains information in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your sites as well. Needless to say, in such a case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, such as your company details, for instance.
