A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which holds info in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of making sure that you're the owner of a particular domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and which you must use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your web sites as well. Of course, in this situation the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally used if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains information showing that a certain digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information also, like your business details, for example.
