A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that holds data in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and that you should use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. However, in this situation 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 in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to shield them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a certain digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, such as your company details, for instance.
