A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which contains info 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 example, 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 specific text that they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites as well. However, in this case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally used if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this case, the record contains information showing that a particular digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, such as your company details, for instance.
