A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain name or a subdomain for many different purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a given domain name and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and that you must use as the record value. The exact same verification method is employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites as well. Needless to say, in this situation 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 in case you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In this case, the record contains info showing that a given digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any type of other information also, such as your company details, as an example.
