What is DNS propagation?

DNS propagation is the process of updating DNS records across the entire global network of servers, which can take some time. This delay occurs because nameservers store DNS information in their cache memory for a specific time period, as defined by TTL (Time-to-Live) values. After that time period expires, servers refresh their data. To avoid downtime, it’s best to plan your DNS changes carefully. Discover more information on DNS propagation!
