A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a given domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique 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 check 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'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a certain digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information also, such as your business details, for instance.
