A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The very same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your web sites as well. Of course, 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 also employed if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can shield them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, just like your business details, for instance.
