A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that holds data in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. However, in this case the content of the record will 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 email addresses so that you can protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information also, just like your company details, for instance.
