Instant Dns Propagation?

I ordered a domain name at 2:25pm

I changed the nameservers to totalchoicehosting at 2:26pm

I tried to access the website on the internet at 2:27pm

 

IT WAS ALREADY WORKING THROUGH TCH!!!

 

How can that be? It has always taken many hours for the nameservers to finally change and for the new domain's dns propagation...

 

This was a matter of seconds or less!

Hi,

that has happened with me 2-3 times, but not every time.

Recently i buyed a domain from GDad.... and it was also an instant DNS updatation however i didn't checked it from different countries.

but mails were also working so seemed exciting.....

 

Normally DNS propogations take 24-48 hours and sometimes upto72 Hrs to complete.

 

anyway Life is full of surprises.

Different TLD's (Top Level Domains) have different policies for updates. Register a .com, typically it'll not take effect until that night. Register a .us, for example, and it'll be updated in the registry immediately.

You would likely have to check with the origanization responsible for the registry of the TLD you want (http://www.iis.se/ for .se), although I'm not sure many publically list their update schedules. You can find all of the organizations for the different registries at IANA (http://www.iana.org).

 

I just know some of update schedules from experience.
