A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which contains data 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 example, have different ways of confirming that you are the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet 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 used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a particular digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information also, like your company details, for instance.
