A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web 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 emails in order to protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a certain digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any other information also, such as your company details, for example.
