    what is dns propagation?

  • #2
    DNS propagation is the time frame it takes for DNS changes to be updated across the Internet. A change to a DNS record—for example, changing the IP address defined for a specific hostname—can take up to 72 hours to propagate worldwide, although it typically takes a few hours.

      Hello Faizan,
      DNS propagation is the time period in which it takes updates to DNS records to be in full effect across all servers on the web. The reason changes aren’t instantaneous is because nameservers store domain record information in their cache for a certain amount of time before they refresh. While your domain won’t experience any downtime from properly planned record changes, some users will still be served a cached version of your site until all servers have propagated.
