A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that contains info in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you're the owner of a particular domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain 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 sites as well. Of course, in such a case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it will 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 this case, the record contains info showing that a given electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information as well, such as your business details, for example.
