A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds 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 you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. Of course, in this situation 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 additionally used when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to prevent them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information as well, such as your business details, for example.
