A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which contains info in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, in this situation the content of the record is going to 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 in order to shield them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a given electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, such as your business details, as an example.
