A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that contains info in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of verifying that you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific 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 sites as well. However, 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 also employed when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a certain digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, such as your company details, as an example.
