  • Damn, how long does it normally take domain to update?

    I own a domain that expired on the 18th of March, 2004. I forgot, so the site went down that night. The next day I quickly newed the domain (March 19, 2004).

    It's now the 21st of March, and the domain still hasn't renewed. Any idea why? I goto my control panel at my registrar, and it won't allow me to "Renew" anymore, saying that it's still in the "Process" or whatever. But I don't know why it would take this long. It's been past the 24hrs.

      Do make sure you updated your name server as well.

            I checked the nameservers, they are fine and still pointing to the correct address.

              They say to wait 24-72 hours, but I have noticed my domains are updated within any where up to 10 hours or less.

                  I use a large range of them, NameCheap, DomainPeople, and I am now a reseller myself, but I can expect changes in domain to propogate anywhere from 10-20 hours.

                    I use NameZero and get changes within 24 hours.

                    Then again, the 24-72 hour figure probably depends on your ISP's DNS servers than anything else.

                        Usually it takes under 12 with Godaddy. Longest I've seen was around 96 hours, sadly.

                            The process of updating a domain name takes no longer than it takes you to press submit.

                            The delay is in the TIME TO LIVE(TTL) on the nameservers of the world. Many only update once every 3 days, while using its cache between those periods.

                            The updates really just depend on how quickly your ISP updates its CACHE.

                            There is a TTL can cache based system because of how much traffic the root domain servers get.

                              What i meant was, the time it takes me to register as in: register and get dns updated. (Domain up, running, and working)
