A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that keeps data in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. However, in this case 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 in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to shield them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, such as your company details, for instance.
