A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that contains data in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your web sites as well. Of course, in such a case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally employed when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information also, such as your business details, for example.
