A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which holds info in human-readable form and not code. It could 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 that you are 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 must use as the record value. The very same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, in such a case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally used when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, just like your company details, for example.
