How long does it take for DNS (Domain Name Server) propagation

Domain Name Propagation. Name server changes usually take 24 to 48 hours to fully start working. This period, called Domain Name Propagation, is the projected length of time it takes for root name servers and cache records across the entire web to be updated with your website’s DNS information. Because of propagation, not all visitors will be directed to your new name servers on your new hosting account; Your old hosting account will directed your old name server to some visitors until propagation is complete.

Their physical location directs the new name servers quickly to the visitors; it is not something APT COM and iHem has control over. Once propagation is complete, your site will appear on our server and your email will be fully functional.

There is no definitive way to tell when propagation is complete. During the first 48 hours, even if you are able to see your site on the new server, your next door neighbor might still be seeing the site on the old server.
