TTL (time to live) Specification

TTL stands for Time to Live. This is the length of time (expressed in seconds) that caching name servers will store this record in their local cache before performing a new query.  TTL can be set for each Advanced DNS record type.

Setting a low TTL value will shorten the length of time that it takes other name servers to notice that you have made a change.  By default, Network Solutions sets the TTL for each record type to 7200 (2 hours).  Network Solutions® allows a minimum of 3600 (1 hour) and a maximum of 86400 (24 hours).
