A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, which contains info 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 instance, have different ways of making sure that you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and that you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your Internet sites as well. Needless to say, in this situation 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 employed if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a given electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, like your business details, for example.
