A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, that keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain address or a subdomain for a variety of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of verifying that you're the owner of a given domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with specific text that they provide and which you must use as the record value. The exact same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that check the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, 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 furthermore used when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to prevent them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a given electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, just like your company details, for instance.
