A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that contains data in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain name or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you need to use as the record value. The very same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, in this situation the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a given electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any other information also, like your company details, for example.
