A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which contains info in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text which 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. However, in such a 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 if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains information showing that a given digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, such as your company details, for example.
