A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of verifying you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your web sites as well. However, in this situation the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore used if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, just like your business details, for example.
