A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of verifying you are the owner of a given domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you must use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. Needless to say, 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 also used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can shield them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, like your business details, for instance.
