A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain address or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of verifying you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and which you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, in this case 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 if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to shield them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains info showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information as well, just like your business details, as an example.
