A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that holds info in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of verifying you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you should 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. However, in this situation the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a certain digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, like your business details, as an example.
