A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds data in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a particular domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you must use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used 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 when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains info showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, just like your company details, for instance.
