Find out more about TXT records - what are they, what is their purpose and how do they fit into the DNS system.
A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, 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 number of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your Internet sites as well. However, in this 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 furthermore used in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a given electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, like your company details, as an example.
