A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that contains data in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a particular domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. However, in this 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 furthermore used when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to prevent them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a particular 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 company details, for instance.
