A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that holds data in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you need to use as the record value. The very same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in this situation the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains information showing that a certain digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any other information as well, just like your company details, for instance.
