A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of verifying you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and that you should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet 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 additionally employed if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to prevent them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains information showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, just like your business details, for instance.
