Hello,

All DNS changes might take up to 48 hours in order to fully update. This is due to ISP DNS cache and general DNS propagating as well. This usually happens a lot faster but will still take at least a few hours to fully update.

You can monitor the DNS propagation with any websites like https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tools/dns or https://www.whatsmydns.net/

just select the desired record type A or MX and then click the Search button. It will show you a DNS record check from various points around the world. This will help you to see if there is a DNS misconfiguration or if it’s just the DNS slowly updating.

Hope this helps! Regards, Alex

DigitalOcean’s DNS service recently experienced an issue that caused DNS records to take longer than normal to propagate completely. This issue should now be resolved. If you are continuing to see issues with DNS propagation, please open a support ticket so the team can investigate the issue.

Thanks for your patience, and sorry for any inconvenience.
