A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of making sure that you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web sites as well. However, in this case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can shield them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains information showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information also, just like your company details, for example.
