A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which holds info in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain name 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 and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and which you must use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your web sites 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 in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a given digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, just like your company details, as an example.
