Originally from ticket #39.

i have initiated forwarding on:


how long does it take to resolve?



Dear Customer,


Did you use our forwarding feature or did you set up a CNAME or A record? 
All of these methods can take up to 48-72 hours to resolve due to DNS propagation, however it is typically much quicker. On average, 24 hours.


Our TTL (time to live) settings for our nameservers are 1 hour, our A records, CNAMEs etc. are less than that.  Then, it's just a matter of the ISPs (internet service providers) to update their caches, which unfortunately we have no control over.


I'll double check all of your settings to make sure everything was setup properly.


Thanks and regards,
