Hello all,

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 and 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

Hey @leandroprada

Based on this DNS lookup dns record

as of Jun 05, 2020 14:11 UTC your DNS record is still showing to be the destination A-Record for

You can also see there is a 3600 second TTL on that DNS setting.

TTL or Time-to-live is a value in seconds that indicates how long a record should be cached for before being checked again.

Has it been more than an hour since you updated the record?

If not, wait an hour and check again, it could just be that the different DNS providers have cached the old setting based on the TTL specified.
