A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds information in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you must use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, in such a case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally employed if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to prevent them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, like your business details, for instance.
