A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that holds data in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. Needless to say, in this situation 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 used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a certain digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information as well, like your business details, as an example.
