A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which contains info in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of verifying that you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, 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 also employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to prevent them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, just like your business details, for example.
