A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that contains data 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 confirming 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 need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, 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 additionally employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, like your company details, for example.
