A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains data in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of verifying you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. The very same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. However, 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 employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to prevent them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information as well, just like your company details, as an example.
