A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds data in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of verifying you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you must use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your websites as well. However, 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 used in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information also, just like your business details, as an example.
