A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which holds info in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. However, in this situation the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also employed when you enable 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 information showing that a particular digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information also, like your business details, for example.
