A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which contains data in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you must use as the record value. The exact same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, in this situation 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 in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, such as your business details, as an example.
