Learn more about TXT records - what are they, what's their purpose and the way in which do they fit in the DNS system.
A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which holds data in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines, for instance, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you must use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your websites as well. Needless to say, in this 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 additionally used if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a given electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information as well, just like your business details, for example.
