A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and that you should use as the record value. The very same verification method is 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 in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, such as your company details, for example.
