A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that keeps information 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 verifying you are the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and which you should use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, in such a case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains info showing that a given digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information also, such as your business details, as an example.
