A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that keeps information in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of making sure that you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you must use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in such a 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 furthermore employed if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains info showing that a given electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information as well, such as your company details, for example.
