A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which holds data in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and which you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, 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 e-mails in order to prevent them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, such as your company details, for example.
