A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that holds information 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 instance, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a given domain and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with certain text which they provide and that you will need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your websites as well. However, in this 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 used when you activated 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 reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any type of other information also, like your business details, as an example.
