A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of verifying you're the owner of a particular domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and that you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Of course, in such a case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains info showing that a given electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, just like your business details, as an example.
