A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that holds info in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain name or a subdomain for many different 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 in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and that you must use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your websites as well. Needless to say, in such a case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a certain digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information as well, like your business details, as an example.
