A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain address or a subdomain for many different 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 by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you should use as the record value. The same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, 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 employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic 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 example.
