A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain address 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 and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and that you need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Needless to say, 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 additionally used in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, like your business details, for example.
