Propagation Print

  • 0

When a website changes to a new server (with a different IP address), or when you register a new domain, nameservers around the world must be notified of the change.
This process of notification is referred to as propagation.

Changes to DNS records do not propagate throughout the Internet immediately, as all server caches first need to expire and refresh, which typically takes 24 to 72 hours.

However USL ensures propagation to be under 24 Hrs if at all possible.

During this time, if you are transferring your domain to another service provider, some nameservers will still refer to your site’s old hosting location while nameservers that
have already been notified of the change will refer to the new location. As a result, visitors accessing your site may be directed to either the old or new location, depending
upon which nameserver they connect to.

During the propagation period, you will need to use your Billing to connect to your cPanel and Filemanager to upload any files you need to. 

If some visitors are still being directed to your old site location after 72 hours have lapsed, you should contact your previous service provider
and request that they delete the DNS zone for your domain from their nameservers.
