A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that holds info in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines, for example, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a given domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and that you must use as the record value. The exact 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 additionally employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, just like your business details, as an example.
