A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you need to use as the record value. The very same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your web 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 email addresses in order to protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, like your company details, for example.
