A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a given domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, in such a case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed if you enable 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 given digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, such as your company details, as an example.
