What is DNS propagation?
Posted by Alpha Daramy on 18 January 2008 07:27 PM

DNS stands for Domain Name Server. It serves two purposes:

1. It translates domain names to IP addresses.
2. It acts as authority for designated domain names.

Propagation refers to the amount of time it takes for all the DNS servers everywhere around the world to recognize the fact that either a new domain is being registered, a domain name has been changed, or that the authority for that domain has changed.
