A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains data in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for a number 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 by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you must use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your websites as well. Needless to say, 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 also used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to prevent them from being forged. In this case, the record contains info showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information as well, like your business details, as an example.
