A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and that you should use as the record value. The very same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in such a case the content of the record is going to 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 email addresses so that you can protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a given electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, just like your business details, for instance.
