A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of verifying you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and which you should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web sites as well. Needless to say, 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 also employed if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a particular digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, like your business details, for example.
