A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which contains info in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you are the owner of a given domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, 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 when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, such as your business details, for instance.
