    Alot of times you change any DNS records and wonder why things are not working right away.

    Many records you change have a thing called "propagation time." Below we have provided a list of common propagation times for DNS records and nameserver changes.

    Nameserver changes - 24/48 hours to propagate

    A/AAAA record changes - 4-6 hours to propagate

    MX (Mail) record changes - 4-6 hours to propagate

    CNAME record changes - 4-6 hours to propagate

    TXT record changes - 0-30min to propagate

    Unfortunately there is nothing we can do to expedite the propagation time. Once the change is made, we must give the proper time for changes to be made.

    You can check the progress of the changes by using a DNS checker website like or
