A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that contains data in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Google, for example, have different ways of verifying you are the owner of a given domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and that you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your sites 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 furthermore used in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a given electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, such as your business details, as an example.

Using a rather user-friendly point-and-click interface, you will only have to select one of your Internet domain names or subdomains from a drop-down menu, pick TXT for the type through a second menu, then input the actual content inside a box.

In order to verify your web site with Google, for instance, you'll just need to log in to your account with them several minutes later and ask them to check your Internet domain or subdomain.
