A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain address or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of verifying that you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you should use as the record value. The exact same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your websites as well. Of course, in this situation 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 additionally employed if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a certain digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any type of other information also, like your business details, as an example.
