A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain name or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of verifying you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your websites 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 additionally used when you enable the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains info showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information also, just like your business details, for instance.
