A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of confirming 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 should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. Of course, in this case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore used in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information as well, such as your business details, as an example.
