A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and that you need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in such a 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 also used if you activated 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 given digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, just like your company details, for instance.
