A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that holds data in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your 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 in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can protect them from being forged. In cases like this, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information as well, just like your company details, for instance.
