A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and which you need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet sites as well. However, in this 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 furthermore employed in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any type of other information also, just like your business details, as an example.
