    Question dns taking 4 days to update?

    I just transferred a domain over from another registar, I had the dns updated to my ns's a day before the transfer, Its been over 4 days and its still bouncing between their parked page and the actual site. (still waiting on the pending registar acceptance)

    anyone ever see it take this long before?

    Normally I see all changes done in less then 2 days.

    Thanks!!

    I registered 3 names through Godaddy this weekend and all had propagated within 24 hours.

    All depends on your ISP and is they keep all of their DNS caches in sync - which it sounds like they don't, which is common practise, you'll just have to wait till all of your ISPs DNS caches have expired the old information.

    I had one problem with godaddy where it got 'stuck' or something. There was nothing godaddy could do except let it work itself out.

    Most Time DNS will be change 24-48 hours for us. But one of Time I have Change Nameserver with Godaddy, after 2 days nothing Changes . So I have update nameserver again. When I log out it will reset it again to Old one so I Contact godaddy about this matter.

    Most of the responses here refer to new registrations. In the case of a transfer things can be very different. The ICANN rule for transfers is that the NS information must not change during the transfer. Many registrars impose a further period of 5-30 days cooling off period to limit domain theft where the nameservers cannot change.

    If you changed the NS with the previous registrar and then transferred the domain before that change propogated you may be hosed.

    With a Namecheap NS transfer, it took 3 days. With Registerfly, it took 24 hours. That is just my experience though.
