A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Google, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you're the owner of a given 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 sites as well. Needless to say, in this situation 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 employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to prevent them from being forged. In this case, the record contains info showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information also, just like your company details, as an example.
