A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of confirming that you're the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. The exact same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your websites as well. Needless to say, in this case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally used if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses 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 reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any sort of other information also, just like your company details, for instance.
