A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that contains info in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of verifying you're the owner of a particular domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites 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 if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains information showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information also, just like your company details, for instance.
