A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that contains info in human-readable form and not code. It can 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 verifying you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. Exactly the 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 will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails so that you can prevent them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains info showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information as well, just like your company details, for example.
