A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, that holds info in human-readable form and not code. It could be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of making sure that you are the owner of a certain domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text that they provide and which you will need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your web sites as well. However, 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 also employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to prevent them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a given digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any other information also, like your business details, for instance.
