A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that holds info in human-readable form and not code. It can be created for a domain or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a given domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and which you must use as the record value. The very same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your web sites as well. Of course, in this situation 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 used if you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can shield 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 can use a TXT record for any other information also, like your business details, for example.
