A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which contains information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of confirming you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you should use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your websites as well. However, in this situation the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally used in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information as well, such as your company details, for instance.
