A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds data in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of making sure that you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is actually 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 used 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 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 so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a given digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, such as your company details, for instance.
