A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which keeps info 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 example, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you must use as the record value. The same verification method is being 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 email addresses in order to prevent them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a certain digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, like your business details, for instance.
