A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of verifying that you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, in this 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 furthermore employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a given electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, just like your business details, for example.
