A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that contains info in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor 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 will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally employed if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains information showing that a certain digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any other information as well, such as your business details, for instance.
