A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being 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'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is also used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to prevent them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, such as your business details, as an example.
