A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that holds information in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you will 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 web sites as well. Needless to say, in such a 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 also employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains info showing that a certain digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, such as your business details, for instance.
