How long do DNS updates take?

All updates made in our DNS manager are performed in real-time. However, it can take from a few minutes to 48 hours for DNS records to fully propagate beyond our system and around the internet.

For many services, like setting up installs in your dashboard, you can usually see the results of sufficient propagation to complete setup in your hosting account within a couple of hours.

You can check how propagation of your DNS records is coming along using this tool: Global DNS Propagation Checker.

Depending on your local Internet Service Provider (ISP) or your browser settings, some DNS records might be cached in the browser. If you can see the correct DNS records, e.g. A, CNAME, MX, etc. entries using the DNS propagation checker but cannot access the website, please wait a bit longer, try clearing your browser cache, or try to access the web address from a different browser or Internet connection, e.g. on your mobile phone.

Newly registered domain names can take up to 24 hours to resolve. Most common TLDs, such as .COM, .NET, .ORG, or new ones like .PIZZA or .PHOTOS will start resolving pretty much instantly. Some ccTLDs, e.g. .IO, .AC, or .SH can take longer to resolve, so we recommend giving it a bit more time before checking.
