A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain name or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of verifying that you are the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet sites as well. However, in this situation 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 employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains information showing that a given electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information also, like your company details, for example.
