A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that holds info in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain address or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a particular domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and that you need to use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your Internet sites 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 employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a certain digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any other information as well, just like your company details, for instance.
