A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which holds information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for many different 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 actually by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, in such a case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, just like your company details, as an example.
