What is DNS?

DNS stands for Domain Name System. The Domain Name System (DNS) translates the domain names to Internet Protocol (IP) address for a specific host so that web browsers can interact with internet resources. DNS is an effective infrastructure that allows propagation across the globe.

What is DNS propagation?

Every domain on the Internet requires a DNS to function on the web servers. Each time a user visits a website, request goes to the IP address associated with the website. Sometimes, it is needed to make changes to the DNS records which take time to propagate. DNS Propagation is the time taken for root name servers of the DNS to change and update across the entire Internet.

What is DNS Propagation check tool?

While changes to the DNS records are occurring, users from some parts of the world notice your website’s old IP while others see the new IP server of your website. DNS Propagation Checker is of great help when changing your DNS name from your register. This DNS Checker tool offers the current DNS lookup against your IP address after making changes to your domain’s records. It will notify you whether the DNS is propagated worldwide or not.

How much time do DNS changes take and how do I speed it up?

DNS changes usually take up to 48-72 hours to propagate worldwide and fully function. Most DNS system elements are out of our reach, having their own policies. To speed up DNS Propagation, here are few ways provided below:

1. Modify an A record that is pointing your hosting account to the new IP address.

2. Lower the TTL value on the record (Time to Live settings) to the minimum (recommending 5 minutes) for your DNS record.

3. Edit your local host file and work on it like it is live. This only allows you to see it.

4. Use a fast-public DNS server like Google DNS servers.

How do I find my DNS domain?

After buying a new domain, DNS records are set up. These records allow you to use email hosting and other services on this domain. Therefore, a DNS hosting provider stores all your DNS records of your domain. To find the DNS hosting of your domain, you have to find the Name servers record for that domain. Name servers record is a list of all DNS servers of domains. Find the record using the Show My DNS Lookup tool.

To speed up requests to the same hostname, operating systems and DNS users automatically cache IP addresses and other results. Sometimes, few unavoidable results are cached and need to be cleared to allow correct communication with the host.
