A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains information in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and that you need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed 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'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a certain digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, such as your business details, for example.
