A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which holds information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you should use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, 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 used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, just like your company details, for example.
