What Is Propagation

Registration of a new domain name, changes to the domain name servers or changes to Advanced DNS records require an update to the information stored across the Internet.

This update process is called propagation and occurs when domain name servers (DNS) on the Internet world-wide update their records (DNS tables) to reflect any updates to domain names and IP addresses. The propagation process must be completed for your changes to be recognized throughout the Internet.

DNS propagation takes approximately 12-36 hours.
