A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you must use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your sites as well. However, in such a 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 furthermore used if you enable 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 information showing that a particular digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any other information as well, just like your business details, for instance.
