DNS propagation either hasn’t reached you yet, or your computer has cached the DNS results locally.

You can use dig to issue a new DNS query. If it comes back with, you know your local host is caching the DNS and you’ll need to flush it (the method differs depending on your operating system).

If dig returns, it means your network provider’s chosen DNS resolver hasn’t been updated yet. Give it time, most DNS changes will fully propagate in under 12 hours but can take 24-48 under certain circumstances.

I like to dig @ to send my DNS query to Google’s public DNS, which is usually among the fastest to update.


Thank you! dig show me which means I need to wait a bit longer. it’s already 24 hours but I’ll wait another day.
