A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that contains data in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of verifying you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you should use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, in this situation 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 additionally employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can shield them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a given 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, such as your business details, for instance.
