A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a given domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you must use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your sites as well. Needless to say, in this situation 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 additionally employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information also, such as your company details, for instance.
