A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain name or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of verifying you are the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and which you must use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites as well. Needless to say, in such a case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a given digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information also, like your business details, as an example.
