I’m trying to change hosting providers and changed the DNS settings at my registrar to the new hosting service. been close to 42 hours and still getting nothing. it still hasn’t propagated.
i’ve talked to the hosting service and they say it should take 24 to 72 hours for the DNS settings to propagate. so i guess i’ll sit here and wait until then. hard to complain to the company until you’ve done what they ask of you i suppose.
in the mean time, just thought i’d throw this out to any web hosting saavy folks - is a propagation time of 72 reasonable? Seems a little long to me. I mean, what if you’re a major company and change web hosts? Certainly they don’t let their sites go down for as long as 72 hours every time they decide to change hosts. How do sites switch DNS servers without extended down time?
