A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain name or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you are the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you should use as the record value. The exact 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 is going to be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a given electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any type of other information also, like your business details, for instance.
