A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which contains information in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a given domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you must use as the record value. The same verification method is used 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 will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a particular digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, just like your business details, for instance.
