A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which holds data in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a given domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you should use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. Needless to say, in this 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 additionally employed if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains info showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, just like your business details, for example.
