A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of making sure that you are the owner of a given domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you must use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet 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 additionally employed when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a given electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, like your company details, for example.
