A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that holds data in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of making sure that you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Needless to say, in such a 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 employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses in order to protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains info 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, like your business details, as an example.
