A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which holds info in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, 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 if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information as well, such as your business details, for instance.
