A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which holds information in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your web sites as well. However, in such a case 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 also used when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, like your business details, as an example.
